AS THE new cricket season draws near, there's plenty going on at Nailsea Cricket Club and Sunday could be one of the busiest days in the club's pre-season calendar.

The day kicks off at 9.30am at the Grove Sports Centre, Nailsea, when club members and volunteers will be assembling the outdoor nets ready for pre-season training.

Then, at 11.30am the whole club will be holding a fun run/walk around the Grove playing fields, in aid of Sport Relief 2010. A short warm-up led by head coach Terry Robinson will get participants ready for the 11.45am start.

To make the event fun and to add a little competition, the club is encouraging people to wear fancy dress (prizes will be given for the best on the day) or alternatively cricket whites.
