The beautiful village of Tattenhall in Cheshire
Ray Hunt: October 2015
Earlier in October, Tattenhall CC Ground Chairman Brian Jarrard was the recipient of a cricketing OSCA (Outstanding Service to Cricket Award) at Lord's Cricket Ground in London.
Held annually, these awards recognise the sterling work from volunteers and helpers nationally. Nominated by Cheshire via Tattenhall CC for the new award titled 'get the game on', the ceremony was hosted by Jonathan Agnew of the BBC and attended by celebrities such as England's Eoin Morgan and Charlotte Edwards.
Brian has been involved as a player at The Flacca since 1981, getting involved in helping on the ground since 1990 and increasing involvement since taking early retirement in 2003.
'It was a polished and professionally run event at a venue second to none, hosted by cricket legends past and present. A really special day meeting and talking with volunteers from all over the country'
Well deserved recognition Brian and thanks for all you do to help the Flacca and the Tattenhall community.
