Welcome to this weeks Wizzy News – our weekly round-up of news and events at Wisborough Green Cricket Club
This week we lead on a somewhat sombre note with a picture taken at Las Ramblas in Barcelona after the devastating terrorist attack. Many of our cricketing families have visited this area in the past and James Sadler and family left a message from our club in support of all those affected by this senseless act.
