Barnsley U3A’s Walking Cricket team has met for the first time since lockdown.

Following all the social distancing guidelines, Walking Cricket Subject Advisor Mac Mckechnie organized this first match.

Mac said, "We used a risk assessment, based on guidelines from the England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) in conjunction with Health and Safety Executive Covid-19 risk assessment guidelines.  All members also completed their own personal risk assessments. It was an absolutely brilliant day which enabled members to get out, some for the first time since lockdown. We even had one new visitor travel all the way from Nottingham to join us".
