The Herm Ashes

This has become an annual fixture since the inaugural event in 2011. Under the auspices of the Guernsey branch of the Lord Taverners charity this cricket match on Herm Island has become known as the Herm Ashes.

A View from the Boundary – with apologies to Test Match Special

In September 2010 Peter and Sharon met Mike Gatting, ex-England captain and one of the ECB selectors, at the White House Hotel on Herm Island, Channel Islands. There the idea was mooted for the Guernsey branch of the Lord’s Taverners annual charity cricket match to take place on Herm Island, where it had previously been held on Sark. All winter the Herm Island gardeners worked on changing Moss Field, formerly used for grazing cows, into the international cricket ground with a slope to rival Lords itself. On the other hand, the view from the boundary on Herm Island simply cannot be beaten!

Sterling efforts were made by Herm’s Director of Hospitality, Jonathan Watson, in co-ordinating all the arrangements for the day. Plans for METECC’s involvement were finalised with Jonathan in May before the actual match on 17th July 2011.

The match was well attended by supporters of the charity, METECC and some of our customers. On the day the celebrities included Mike Gatting, Andy Caddick, Chris Tarrant, Lorraine Chase, Bill Turnbull and Eastenders actors Ricky Groves, Perry Fenwick and Steve McFadden. It was a 20 over match ending with the burning of the bails to make ashes, which were put into a replica of the England/Australia urn, and the presentation of a crystal trophy, here also note the similarity to the Australian Ashes trophy! Lorraine Chase batted, bowled and fielded beautifully and was
declared the “Man of the Match”.

The whole fund-raising weekend with its associated auction and lobster lunch on Herm Island raised a final total of £55,000. Everyone thought that the location of the event whilst in Sark was superb, but how very much better it was on Herm! Both Perry Fenwick and Steve McFadden asked to join the Lord’s Taverners Guernsey region, as they had so much fun.

METECC's sponsorship will continue for this event. More information can be found here.

Attenborough Centre for the Creative Arts

As an alumni of Sussex University and long-standing resident in the area. Sharon has been heavily involved in the music scene in the county. Therefore when Sussex decided to rebuild the Gardner Centre, and rename it the Attenborough Centre they called for sponsorship.

A specially commissioned typographic of the late Lord Attenborough was painted by local artist Mike Edward and Sharon's name will feature in this when it is unveiled in 2015. Please visit Mike's website for further information.

McGrath Foundation

Australian Cricketing Legend Glenn McGrath set up this much needed charitable foundation in 2002. Following his wife Jane’s diagnosis of breast cancer, their aim is to help provide Australia with much needed Breast Care Nurses.

METECC proudly support this charity and Peter can often be seen sporting his pink shirt and 'baggy' whilst EMC testing in the test room or out on companies sites.
