Events Around the Village
The necessary Covid restrictions meant there was little happening in the village life throughout early 2021.
Very welcome relief came at the end of March when the tennis courts opened during a gloriously sunny week.
About the village in April: Daffodils still blooming, lambs appearing, and the Ash tree on the Green being felled
May saw the return of cricket to the village. Our cricket correspondent reports:
It was a real joy to see the newly promoted Winsford Cricket Club open its account on Saturday against Churchinford, recently two divisions ahead. On a difficult wicket Winsford made 84, by all accounts 20 runs short of what was needed. The defence of a such a low score was always going to be tricky, but Winsford gave it a real good go. A flurry of wickets falling at the end meant the visitors were very worried. As it was they scraped home with 2 wickets to spare.
The sun was out and a lovely afternoon was had by all, especially the players after such a long lay-off.
