More news, no ads


Burghley Park have been forced to cancel their cricket week and popular sixes tournament for a second successive year.

The Stamford club had hoped to host the event next month following the cancellation of last year's planned staging due to the coronavirus pandemic.

However, the Government's announcement this week about delaying the final stage of its road-map left organisers to curtail their plans.

The Burghley Park Sixes always attracts a bumper crowd.
