This year’s HHCC cricket tour centred around the beautiful New Forest, in Hampshire. The team was based in Bournemouth, renowned for its sandy beaches, offering the chance for various pre-match sporting activities, plenty of ice-cream or just a snooze in the Mediterranean temperatures. With an average of over 26 degrees celsius everyday, we obviously needed to keep hydrated at all times! The opening fixture was at Cadnam; a beautiful ground surrounded on all sides by the forest. It was a closely contested day’s cricket with The Heath taking the honours with an over to spare. Three more fixtures followed with two more wins. The tour was well supported by our travelling fans and families, and will live long in the memory. Plans are now underway for 2019!
