A cricket club’s showpiece event was a ‘resounding success’ at the weekend – attracting a healthy crowd.

Cleeve Cricket Club hosted its annual beer festival on Friday and Saturday.

A party featuring live music proved popular on Friday, and Saturday’s fun coincided with the village family day at the King George V Playing Field – with a game of cricket providing the perfect backdrop.

Club member Chris Cole said: “The festival was once again a resounding success with both the Friday and Saturday very busy.

“The group Junction 19 entertained with their excellent music on Friday, and the village family day on Saturday complemented the festival well.

“For the second year the gin corner was extremely busy with the varied cocktails a great favourite.

“Overall this was a great village event capped off with the first team winning their match.”
