St David’s will host the annual Gilbert Lamb Day on Good Friday [Apr 3], with kite flying, food, games, races and of course the always popular Mohawk Grande Prix.

A spokesperson said, “We are at it again doing it as only St David’s County Cricket Club Inc. can do – it’s Easter and what better way to celebrate than with the Community of St. David’s at Lord’s, Home of the Warriors.

“Come expecting lots of laughter, lots of food, memories of yester Good Fridays and Easter celebrations and out fits, Easter Sunday menus, bragging rights to the best hot cross buns and fish cakes, visiting with child hood friends and meeting new friends and visiting with ones you haven’t seen since last year and keeping in memory those who have gone before us.

“Activities for the children as well as the adults and the Mohawk Derby Go Kart Races and the Pedal Cycle Races. Vendors will also be in place for those who like to travel light and untroubled, bring your ez-up tents, your cots, your chairs, your family and friends as there is plenty of space for everyone.

“The Executive and Management of St. David’s County Cricket Club would like to share the following information with you and ask that everyone please pay close attention the information regarding parking, road closures and bus schedules, it is very important that things are done in decency and in order:

“All spectators are asked to be mindful of your children and pets [yes, they come too], due to safety concerns there are changes to the course rules for spectators and you as spectators are encouraged to comply this is all very very important not only for the racers safety but yours as well.”
