Wizzy News 4 May 2023

Welcome to this week’s Wizzy News

Following two failed attempts at getting our Friday evening training sessions going due to the weather, we are looking foward to welcoming our Juniors to training this Friday evening. The weather forecasts seem to be mixed but the good news is that the ground isnt too wet underfoot so fingers crossed the weather behaves itself on Friday evening for the training, the BBQ and the all important Ice Cream Van which for many is the highlight of the evening.

Should the weather be problematic we will send out an email no later than 3pm to confirm that training has been cancelled. We will post regular updates on our website during the course of the day to confirm whether training will go ahead or not. Please click here to go to the home page which will provide the updates

Lots of cricket on the menu for this week with our First X1 getting their season off to a start with an away game againt Goring by Sea X1, our Second X1 will be at home against Chichester Priory Park X1 Please click here for the team selection.

Our Under 10’s also have their first game on the Green at 9pm on Saturday against West Chiltington & Thakeham, our Under 12’s are away to West Chiltington & Thakeham and our Under 14’s are home to Billingshurst on Sunday morning. Our under 11 girls have their first game on the Green on Wednesday evening which is very special as it will be their first ever league game.

Parking on Friday evening

Just a quick reminder about parking. We are expecting a large number of children at training on Friday evening and with this comes a pressure on parking around the Green. We therefore ask you to walk to the Green if possible and be considerate when parking avoiding the verges around the playground area and Butts Meadow. Please also be mindful of the implication of your parking on the flow of traffic around the Green – we obviously want to avoid any unnecessary risks caused by the build-up of traffic. There is additional parking to be found in the Village Hall car park, so please do make use of it if you can.

Many thanks in advance for your help with this which will be much appreciated by the wider village community
