Story

Scaynes Hill Cricket Club have recently commissioned a second cricket ground, near Freshfields, right next to the Railway. We covered a report by the Worthing Herald in May which asked if this was now the most picturesque cricket ground in Sussex. As editor of the Railway's eNewsletter, and a former (social) player, this encouraged me to appeal for a Bluebell Railway Cricket XI (the first ever?) to play the Club in a social match.

Both Bluebell and Scaynes Hill CC are also keen to do a bit of fundraising. Bluebell has secured £300 in match funding, and the first 30 donations to this page of £10 or over will be matched by £10 from this fund. There will also be joint fundraising taking place, and we are planning a series of activities on the day. we are encouraging supporters of both sides to attend - Keep watching the Bluebell eNewsletter for updates.....
