Herefordshire Cricket's Pentland Gardens ground is a relatively new addition to the county's sporting scene and the organisation is keen to engage with the local community.

Chance to Shine coach Anna Robertson is organising their first Community Games, bringing the spirit of London 2012 to Kings Acre.

The event will run from 2 pm to 5 pm on Sunday and will start with an opening Ceremony lead by Paralympic gold medalist Josie Pearson.

Cricket activities will be provided by Herefordshire Cricket and local clubs will offer taster sessions in golf, bowls and taekwondo as well as sports day races for all the family.

Forest school and bouncy castle for the children and delicious crepes and waffles. The day will end with a closing ceremony incorporating a parade of medalists. Hereford Hospital will broadcast the event to people in hospital who will be able to share in the Paralympic/Olympic legacy.

Herefordshire under-15 girls played in a festival at Denstone College with counties such as Lancashire, Derbyshire, Staffordshire and Shropshire in opposition.

The line-up was, back from left, Anna Robertson (coach), Alex Penning, Anna Ricks, Eleanor Taylor, Lizzie Jeffreys, Alice Stockdale, Natalya Scase, Emily Joss, Ella Johnson (assistant coach); front: Hebe Garbutt, India Turner, Isla Kendall, Sarah Lewis (captain), Cerys Mealand and Hannah Williams.
