A RE­MINDER that it’s not too late to en­ter the Apperley Quar­ter Marathon which will take place on Sun­day Septem­ber 22, start­ing at 11am at Apperley Cricket Club.

This pop­u­lar event is held over a multi-ter­rain course around Apperley and Deerhurst.

Sup­port­ers and friends will be very wel­come at the cricket ground and along the route to cheer on the run­ners.

The Apperley Cricket team which played in the fi­nal of the Vil­lage Knock­out com­pe­ti­tion at Lord’s 21 years ago (or some of them) played a match against a team of cur­rent play­ers on Sun­day, Au­gust 25.

The match was en­joyed by a good crowd, some of whom had been to Lords to sup­port the team in 1998.
