Broadhalfpenny Down is a wonderful place for cricket lovers and, each season, we see ashes scattered at the cradle of cricket.
Bill Stevens, a former member of the armed forces, had his ashes scattered by his wife recently. Aptly, she is standing here by the Hazel Baines-Waker bench on the Western boundary of the ground. Bill scored for many years with Hazel and was the match announcer for some of the charity games on the ground. Bill was fondly remembered on the day of the visit by club stalwarts Gerry Northwood and Mike Beardall.
