Slingsby Cricket Club plays at home this evening

Slingsby Sports Field 6.15 p.m. Tuesday 26th May

Our cricket club team plays its first home match of the Feversham League season against Spout House, starting around 6.15 tonight, on the Sports Field.

Spectators very welcome, of course.

Deer and traffic accidents

At this time of year (between April and June, peaking in May) there is an increased danger of deer running onto the road, as young ones  leave their breeding areas.

This can of course happen at any time of day, but the risk is apparently greatest around sunrise and between sunset and midnight.

Guidance to motorists from the AA is here.

The other time of increased danger is from October to December.

We have a fair number of deer in our area, and sadly a small but significant number of accidents when vehicles collide with them. The latest reported accident  was last weekend between Helmsley and Sutton Bank.

Mind how you go.
