Fun Fact Friday, Wk 45

Morning All

First week of June, Summer is here ….. See below your fun fact for this week :

Cricket bats are made of a tree called Willow, ever wondered why ? Well here’s your chance to find out 🙂

Cricket bats are usually made from English Willow as this is a tradition which is still followed today as well as being very tough and shock-resistant, not being significantly dented nor splintering on the impact of a cricket ball at high speed, while also being light in weight.

Enjoy the weekend folks – how about a game of cricket in the garden ?!
