No idea how or why this promotion came about, but if you are a Lewisham resident who's over 60 and like cricket, it could be for you..! (And incidentally it would be interesting to see how many of my blog readers fit this description!)
This press release from the council:
Lewisham residents aged 60 and over are being offered free Lord’s cricket passes for the 2012 season.
Tickets are for the April-September season and include 11 home matches.
There are a limited number of tickets available. If a large number of applications are received, names will be selected at random.
How to apply
· be aged over 60 (as at 3 April 2012)
· live in the borough of Lewisham
· have a Lewisham library card
· complete an application form.
What if I don't have a library card?
If you aren’t already a member, it's free to join and you just need to take proof of age and address to any Lewisham library.
Closing date for completed applications is 3 April 2012.
