Worcestershire Cricket Society have honoured Ann Mullen for her many years sterling service as secretary of the organisation.

Ann received a framed copy of the ‘three pavilions’ print commissioned by the Supporters’ Association to mark the County’s 150th Anniversary.

It was presented to her by former England and Warwickshire batsman Dennis Amiss at the Society’s last monthly meeting in The View.

The painting by Worcester artist David Birtwistle shows Worcestershire CCC’s Isaac Pavilion at Boughton (1878-1896), the Foley Pavilion at New Road (1898-2008) and the magnificent view south-west across the Graeme Hick Pavilion (2009-) to the Malvern Hills.

Ann had already been made a life member of the Society after stepping down as secretary and committee member in the summer.

She filled a vital role in many capacities in helping ensure the smooth running of the Society.

Ann has been responsible for organising the interesting and varied guest speakers who have entertained Cricket Society members during the winter cricket evenings – including the current 2017-2018 programme.

Committee member Mike Hitchings is continuing as the contact point for anyone wishing to get in touch with the Society (mobile 07979 464715 or email mikehitchings@aol.com) during the interim period until a new secretary can be elected.

*There are still copies of the print available to purchase priced £50 – plus postage and packaging if required – from Supporters’ Association chairman Andrew Jenkins on 07582 372566.
