Tuktuk Day 130

I had intended to give an update from Morecambe FC today but the situation is still so unclear that I am not sure I can give a meaningful overview. “Maybe tomorrow,” as the song goes!

So, with the wonders of digital technology, it’s off to Essex where I have received the final details for this Sunday’s event.

The organiser, Greg Lansdowne says,

“With just a few days to go until the Essex Retro Football & Cricket Show, I wanted to confirm a few of the key details: 

Address: The Cloud County Ground (the pavilion), New Writtle St, Chelmsford CM2 0PG

Times: 10.30am-2.00pm, Sunday 9th June 2024

Visitors coming on foot: the River Gate entrance is no longer open on a non-matchday so entrance will be via the main gate on New Writtle Street.

Visitors coming by car: A steward will  be at the main gate on New Writtle Street until midday, so car parking is free up to then if you say you are attending the event and give your registration number.

Special guest Graham Gooch is due to arrive around 11.30am and will be signing cards for a new Futera multi-sport collection from approximately midday, as well as taking part in a Q & A.

There will be 19 stallholders and the Essex Cricket Museum is open on the day, featuring a special Nasser Hussain exhibition.

licensed bar will be open throughout the event, providing drinks and snacks.

Please do spread the word and here’s to a fine day of sporting nostalgia.”

I shall be there and hope to see many of you there too.

In the meantime, kindly remember that the purpose of this 90 day challenge is to raise funds for Prostate Cancer and an equal amount for my local club, FC Deportivo Galicia. As always, I hope that you are all enjoying this digital tour of the UK and that you will consider a donation to support FC Deportivo Galicia and/or Prostate Cancer UK 

If everybody chipped in with just £1, I would easily hit my target of £10,000 and life would be easier at the club whilst the charity could continue its great work. A HEARTFELT thanks, if you can donate. If you can’t any shares of this site or even this post would be gratefully received. Thanks again.
