Beach barbecue!

THE rain has been somewhat of a pain of late - and has interrupted cricket at the lochside in Forfar to a fair degree.

But, in a bid to ensure the sport is available at both junior and senior level for some time to come committee members are always looking at ways of raising money.

And fingers are crossed that the sun will shine on two forthcoming events.

The first is a beach barbecue at the lochside ground on Saturday, July 23.

What better way to kick-off your trades fortnight celebrations than don the shades, sun hat and those Bermuda shorts and party!

On a hot summer’s night there is no better location for a beer and a barbecue than the Strathmore Cricket Club.

Members and guests are encouraged to support this latest fund-raiser, with full ticket details available from the clubhouse.

Three weeks later, on Sunday, August 14, the rescheduled Factory Cup six-a-side cricket competition will be held and again full details are available at Strathmore Cricket Club.

And, this Monday coming there will be another of the popular bingo sessions.
