Senior and Junior cricket is well underway in the Wairarapa!

On Friday evening there was a hive of activity at Queen Elizabeth Park where 4 games of cricket were played.

The sun was out, there was a little bit of wind, but it was fantastic to see the parent support.  Not only do parents support their children on the side line as the photo below shows, but they also give up their valuable time coaching the children.
