The annual cricket challenge between Lympstone Village (represented by Lympstone CC) and Harefield at St Peter’s School on June 23rd resulted in victory for the Village side.

The real winner, however, was the Church restoration fund, which benefited by nearly £350. This year, the event took place in glorious weather, and the spectators enjoyed their barbecues, ice cream and liquid refreshment to the sound of the Lympstone Band. A pleasant evening was rounded off by declaration of the Raffle prize winners.

The Friends of Lympstone Church, who sponsor and organise the event are as usual grateful to St Peter’s School for the hospitality, and to the local businesses who contributed raffle prizes. Many thanks to all concerned.
