Kids get street with urban cricket
Two legends join kids to mark start of Ashes and street initiative
PRIMARY school kids took to the streets in a game of urban cricket as the hotly contested Ashes kicks off in Oz.
To celebrate the occasion children from Middle Row Primary School, in Kensal Road, Kensington, were joined by legends, Ray Meagher, of Ozzie soap, Home and Away, and Mike Gatting, one of the last English cricketers to win the competition in Australia.
The event was held at The Westway Sports Centre, in Crowthorne Road, North Kensington on November 24.
Street20 is part of Streetchance, an initiative that aims to engage young people from disaffected areas.
