Yesterday I visited Eymet in the Dordogne where, apart from a fantastic brocante, there was a cricket match - SW France versus Lord's Taverners. Cricket is gaining popularity in France and the South West has several teams which fielded a 'super-team' to play the visitors at Eymet's cricket ground. Lord's Taverners tour the world raising money for young people, providing sporting opportunities for those who are disadvantaged.
The Taverners are made up of celebrities, ex professional cricketers and other volunteers who give up their time for the charity.
Yesterday we had Mike Gatting and Andy Caddick, from the cricketing community, plus celebrities Nicholas Parsons (commentating, not playing), Chris Tarrant and A Place in the Sun's Jonny Irwin.
I had the chance to tell Jonnie about French Properties Direct....so watch this space and lets hope A Place in the Sun casts an eye in our direction.
Incidentally, the home team won (rather convincingly) the Lord's Taverners raised lots of money for their good causes and a good day was had by all.
