Our Community on the Green event held on 29 July was a great success.
We were delighted to welcome lots of local people who wanted to learn more about our work and celebrate Cricket Green.
Highlights of the evening were:
- An excellent speech by Mayor of Merton David Chung
- The opportunity to view our recent national Civic Voice Design Award – for our Lottery funded work on three listed local landmarks
- Presentation of cheques to Mitcham Cricket Club by both Miitcham Cricket Green Community & Heritage and Mitcham Society following our annual joint golf day earlier in the year
- A guided walk round Mitcham Cricket Green
- Cricket was played by young members of Mitcham Cricket Club
There was a spot of rain during the event, but as you will see from one of the photos below, one of our members took charge of ensuring pools didn’t form on our gazebo!
