NW Federation Chair, Paul & Fylde CC Chair, Liz were interviewed by Scott Wallis on his "Talking Sport" show - a show that avoids discussing Football, Cricket, Rugby or any of the other 'mainline' pursuits and gives air-time to 'minor' less popular sports like ours.
We wish to thank Scott, he treated us seriously and with sincerity allowing us to explain our passion.

Great turn out today of the usual suspects plus 6 helpers.
More sunshine and a different selection of volunteers – 10 in all! Squads cleared the West boundary, cleaned the huts and storage shed and burned all the rotten wood Philip and Ian had a difficult time getting the spreader to work satisfactorily – the eventual solution meant we had to run with it to get it to spread! A relay team managed the job admirably Next job is to mow and mark the lawns – this will be toward the middle of March

Preparations for the new and improved drainage on the East of the lawns have been completed. The next stage of laying a pipe will take place shortly. This essential work will take the club forward with reduced maintenance for many years.

Steve Wins Weather Photographer
A British photographer (sic) has scooped a global prize with his shot of lightning over Blackpool. Stephen Cheatley's picture depicts the Lancashire seaside resort - known for its annual illuminations - lit up by a more celestial source during a storm. The amateur lensman beat 4,000 fellow snappers to be crowned Weather Photographer of The Year with his Electric Blackpool image. Judges said it had been "an extremely competitive year".
Mr Cheatley said he set out after an "intense" summer storm a few days earlier had made him "determined to try to capture some strikes this time". His persistence was rewarded when, just after midnight, Blackpool's famous promenade was lashed by rain and multiple bolts of lighting. He said he chose the seafront location to capture some "famous buildings in the shot like the piers and Blackpool Tower". Mr Cheatley was named overall winner, while prizes were also given in the over-17s and under-16s categories.
