Cricketers buzz off on charity trek

This Is Wiltshire: Cricketers riding off on their fundraising trip from the pub in Bradford on Avon to Poole and Yeovil Cricketers riding off on their fundraising trip from the pub in Bradford on Avon to Poole and Yeovil

Players from the Beehive Cricket Club in Southwick cycled 130 miles on a tour of familiar place names to raise money for the club and Dorothy House hospice.

Eight cricketers set off from the old Beehive pub in Bradford on Avon on Saturday and cycled to the New Beehive Hotel in Poole before heading home via the Beehive Inn in Yeovil on Sunday.

Riders had to contend with wind and rain.

Player James Taylor, 35, of Trowbridge, said: “A lot of strength of character was shown. The weather on the first day was make or break. We were exhausted, cold and hungry. Morale was low, but coming back was a pleasure on Sunday.”
