Charity tennis marathon – 21st April 2018

Cherry Burton team player Pete Bridgewater played a 24 hour tennis match to raise money for Sport Relief.

The match was played under normal tennis rules, with the only breaks being 90 seconds at changes of ends and 2 minutes at the end of sets, plus a comfort break if needed every 3 sets.

Across the 24 hours, Pete played 12 different opponents in 2 hour slots. Pete somehow managed to beat 10 of the opponents, drawing one and losing / drawing one – he was 1 set all, but his opponent Tom was up in the third set, so Pete says he can have that one! The overall score was 36 sets to Pete, and 2 sets to the opponents which is an incredible effort and display of his competitiveness!

Money is still being collected in, however currently Pete has managed to raise over £1200.00 for Sport Relief – a truly amazing accomplishment.

Pete has said: “Thank you to everyone for coming down and supporting, and for all the kind donations. The response has been phenomenal and to raise so much money for Sport Relief has made a very mentally and physically demanding challenge; completely worth it. I would also like to thank my opponents, as well as Cherry Burton Tennis club and sports field committee for allowing me to play the match at Cherry Burton, where I play my team matches. The facilities here are great and they do an excellent job at maintaining them. Although I won’t be rushing to do the event again, I will always look to set up and take part in challenges to raise money for charities.”

30th March 2018 – Owl boxes installed

In order to increase the likely hood of getting barn owls nesting at the Sportsfield we are advised that having two nest boxes in the near vicinity of each other improves the likely hood that one of them will get used.
HMP Humber have built a barn owl box for us and we are grateful to Bishop Burton College for erecting a platform on which the nest box will stand
We will keep you updated if we are successful in attracting a nesting pair of barn owls.

Cherry Burton Sportsfield Celebrates National Bird Box Week

14th Feb to 21st Feb 2018

The Cherry Burton Sportsfield Committee are delighted to be involved with National Bird Box week.

Bishop Burton College surveyed the site and, in conjunction with HMP Humber who supplied 24 small bird boxes plus a barn owl box, a team of students arrived on site and erected the nest boxes in the most appropriate positions.

Different designs of boxes have been erected to attract different species of small birds. The College will regularly revisit the site to record the occupancy and species of the birds using the boxes. We will report their findings later in the year.
