Eighty youngsters, some of whom have never played before, took part in the fifth annual Hethersett and Tas Valley Schools’ kwik cricket festival.

Pupils from primary schools at Aslacton, Newton Flotman, Poringland, Preston (Tasburgh), Saxlingham Nethergate and Shelton with Hardwick were involved.

The youngsters were randomly mixed up to create eight teams with 10 players in each. Each team had different coloured T shirts sponsored by South Norfolk Council and Hethersett and the Meltons Sports Association, and an enjoyable tournament took place.

The day was organised by Hethersett and Tas Valley Cricket Club’s youth team coach Sara Worley and club members from Long Stratton High School acted as umpires and scorers. Staff from the various schools acted as team managers.

The prizes were presented by David Bills, South Norfolk and Norfolk county councillor for Hethersett.

Happy New Year. The turn of the year inspires many of us to set ourselves new fitness goals. For me, it is simply to continue running and to enjoy it. For others, I realise it may serve as the impetus to strap on those running shoes for the first time. So, if you are thinking of taking up running this year, here are a few tips I’ve picked up along the way which I hope will help.
