Lymington Cricket Club went completely nutty last Saturday night - and it wasn't anything to do with Peter Tapper's career-best 6 for 27 achieved earlier in the day! It was more to do with the fund-raising evening being held for Chris Nutt and his family who recently suffered a terrible stroke of bad luck when their credit cards were stolen and a substantial amount of money removed from their bank account.
'Nutt Aid' featured musical interludes from Super Lewis Gregory and Jason Noble (who also performed some baffling magical tricks), as well as competitions and some very dodgy singing from Meg Gannaway. A tasty selection of food was supplied by 'Wendy Woo's Drive-Thru'.
The first of the competitions saw Scott Tapper triumph in the 'Lob the peanut into your father's mouth' game, although in fairness to the other competitors he did have a bigger target area! Bob Iles then cleaned up (literally) in the 'Eating a bowl of peanuts with a pair of chopsticks' game. The 'Name that Nut' quiz was won initially by Karl Whatham until it was discovered that the cheating Aussie had actually written all the answers down AFTER they had been read out! The Brigadier took first prize in the sweepstake after pulling the day's top scorer Adie Hunt out of the hat.
