ARUNDEL FESTIVAL - Latest update as at Sunday 15th July 12 noon.15-Jul-2012
Arundel Festival of Cricket - CB40 Sussex Sharks v Kent Spitfires - 1:45pm start
The Arundel Festival of Cricket starts on Monday 16th July after a very, very wet weekend. Kent Spitfires are the opposition for the CB40 Group C match due to start at 1:45pm.
As of Noon on Sunday the outfield was very wet from the rain over the previous 72 hours, but it is draining. In addition many of the walkways around the ground and some of the car parking areas, are and will remain wet and prone to becoming a bit muddy as they become more and more used on the day. Certain parts of the spectator areas may not be accessible so please adhere to any closure signs, and we would recommend you wear suitable footware for the conditions.
The forecast for Monday indicates a risk of further rain during the course of the day, so please keep an eye on the website or ring the normal phone line at The PROBIZ County Ground (0844 264 0202) for hourly updates starting from 9:30am tomorrow (Monday).
And finally, a reminder that the Olympic Torch Relay passes through Arundel at around 3:30pm and the Town Centre will have road closures from 2pm for a couple of hours at least. Please leave plenty of time for your journey, especially if you coming from the West. To assist arriving spectators in this regard, Car Parks will be open from 11am, with gates opening at 11:45am.
