To celebrate HM The Queen’s 90th Birthday, the Village Hall Committee put on an event on Sunday 12 June in the Chapel Field. There were picnics, a Pimms bar, Cricket, Rounders and a Raffle. Thanks were given to Gerard & Shirley Wyllys for the use of Chapel field and especially to Gerard for his sterling efforts in mowing the grass and making the field look like a proper cricket ground.
The Cricket Match was between teams from Tarrant Monkton and Tarrant Launceston. In a good contest, Tarrant Launceston came out the winners by 2 wickets. The scorecard is shown here – Cricket Match Scores 2016
The Rounders match appeared to involve most of the village and was great fun.
Tarrant Launceston beat Tarrant Monkton 6 rounders to 4. Those that managed to score a whole rounder were Martin Whitfield and Royce Wilkie for Monkton and Tim Wallbridge, Finn Dore, Lou Woollard (run by Mike Turner) and Ruby Dalton for Launceston.
