A fun-filled day of cricket is in store in Saxlingham Nethergate as players from the village club's past, present and future get ready for their second festival.

Today, Monday, six teams will play three matches, with a bowl off to decide the winner.

Around 65 players are expected to take part.

And everyone is welcome to the free event, at the village's playing field, from 11am onwards.

As well as 15-15 over matches to enjoy, there will be a children's play area, a barbecue, and a raffle to raise money for mental health charity Mind.
