AGM and Talk: Frank Fenner – Hero or Villain? – CANCELLED

Wednesday, 11 May , 7:30 pm 9:00 pm

Unfortunately this talk has had to be cancelled due to Covid. We hope to reschedule it for later in the year. The AGM will be run at a future meeting, details to be announced.

“Fenner’s” is well known in Cambridge, even amongst those who know little about cricket, but being named after the University Cricket Ground is currently Frank Fenner’s only legacy. When he died in the late 19th century no obituary was published in local papers. Why?

Nigel Fenner is related to Frank Fenner, currently writing a book on his life. Nigel arrived in Cambridge in 1981 to train as a teacher at the University, where he also secured his football Blue. Over the last 40 years Nigel has lived locally, including just off Mill Road (for a period of 5 years), and worked in education, mostly with vulnerable and challenging young people. You can read more about Nigel at www.cambridgesportstours.co.uk.

The talk will be preceded by the Annual General Meeting of the society (see timings below).

This event will take place in Fenner’s Cricket Pavilion which can be accessed through the gates into the car park at the top of Mortimer Road. Please note there is no guest car parking at Fenner’s (use Queen Anne Terrace Car Park) and also we’re afraid that there is no accessible access to the Pavilion as it is on the first floor up a flight of steps.
