HOWZAT! Although the weather wasn’t conducive, the children thoroughly enjoyed themselves at the All Stars Cricket festival at Harlow Town CC.
SGO David Stacey led a morning of fun cricket-themed activities which the 14 teams rotated through. Over 80 children enjoyed the rotation of skill-based games, co-operating together to throw, catch and bat their way through the morning’s drizzle.
Against the beautiful green backdrop, the teams from Church Langley, The Downs, Little Parndon, Jerounds, Roydon, Freshwaters, Harlowbury, Saint Nicholas, Fawbert and Barnard and Cooks Spinney were fantastically supported by the school staff, who ensured the children remained engaged with series of mini-challenges.
