Cricket, Crinodendron and Creativity

Redruth Cricket Club

1   My Brother-in-law, who lives in Warsaw, is staying with us for a couple of weeks and had a wish to see an English Cricket match. We were lucky that the last match of the season was being played at home on the Cricket ground only minutes away from us. It was very relaxing watching the slow progress and pleasing to catch some of the action.
