Huge congratulations to Alastair Cook for achieving his 10,000 Test run.

One of only 12 to have ever scored this many and certainly the youngest.

But did you know he was using a cricket bat manufactured by Gray Niccols? This internationally acclaimed company is based here in Robertsbridge. We’re very proud of this claim to fame.

And how welcoming is a piece of good news these days.
