Nationals Member for Lismore, Thomas George MP, has encouraged the Northern Rivers community to join the summer celebration of cricket in December as part of the Home Ground Cricket Tour.

Supported by the NSW Government as part of the 2015 ICC Cricket World Cup, the Home Ground Cricket Tour will give local clubs across NSW a taste of World Cup excitement.

“I am delighted that the Home Ground Cricket Tour will take over Oakes Oval on Tuesday 9 December to celebrate the sport of cricket and the role it plays in bringing people together across the whole of NSW,” Mr George said.

“I invite the entire community to get along to this wonderful event to enjoy a great family day out with fantastic activities and entertainment,” he said.

Lismore is one of 27 locations across NSW to host the Home Ground Cricket Tour.

“This event will give people an opportunity to view key pieces from the world-famous Bradman Museum and to get involved with the sport by taking part in hands-on activities conducted by Cricket NSW,” Mr George said.

“I was honoured to join the Deputy Premier Troy Grant, Minister for Regional Tourism John Barilaro and former cricketer Michael Bevan at the tour launch.”
