Cricket on the Village Green

There is this annual tradition of a cricket tournament in the Village Green in the centre of the village. This year it attracted more people as usual for there were a few South African sport celebrities as a rugby- and a cricket star but those we did not photograph (that’s for the local paparazzi 😉 ). More interesting was the soap-bubble and the non-celebrities drinking beer in a tub.
