Rounders 2018

We held our annual rounders match on June 21st at Maresfield Recreation Ground. This
was the 6th year we had organised the event alongside Simmons Gainsford and it proved
to be our most popular. 13 businesses local to the area attended and from this we formed
8 teams of 11 players. The businesses who attended were, The Highlands Inn, Dawson Hart
Solicitors, So Legal, Pennell’s Carpets, TR Fastenings, Thrones, Peter Taylor Associates, Garrison Roofing, ActionCoach, JS Electrical, Lyons Finance, Simmons Gainsford and ourselves.

Over 120 people took part in the event, as players and spectators. We asked for a donation of £2 per person which went straight to our chosen charity, Children’s Respite Trust. All donors got to enjoy a BBQ, kindly cooked by volunteers from Maresfield Cricket Club, who also ran the bar to quench the thirst of the players in the evening sun.

We had two games running at once, Gary King from Uckfield FM kindly umpired one, while Jess from Simmons Gainsford umpired the other.

The worthy winners of the evening were Thorne Civil Engineers! Congratulations to them for winning the event and beating us for the second year running!

We all had a great evening and we’re delighted that so many businesses got involved. We raised a staggering £347 for the charity, a massive thank you to all who attended!
