I don't like cricket... I love it*...
This Summer Bonne Maman is delighted to become a sponsor of The National Village Cup to support grassroots cricket.
With around 300 clubs from villages across the British Isles competing to play in the final on the hallowed turf of Lord’s in September, The National Village Cup is the ultimate for any club cricketer. 33 Clubs from England, Scotland and Wales have won the treasured cup over the last 50 years, so the brand sends best wishes and ‘bon chance’ to all the players this year and looks forward to meeting the winning teams at Lord’s.
Almost as famous as Ben Stokes’ incredible match winning stand at the third Ashes test at Headingley in 2019, is the tradition of the Cricket Tea. Some more hearty and delicious than others – but always welcome – a traditional Cricket Tea needs good sandwiches, crisps & dips, scones and jam, a showstopper cake for cutting, and a good brew. For a step-by-step guide to serving up a delicious Cricket Tea that is a cut above, see our Perfect Cricket Teas.
To see if you are close to an upcoming match to listen to the summer sound of leather on willow and cheer on one of the teams, check out the fixtures on The Village Cup.
