The catering staff at The Point, Lancashire County Cricket Club’s conference and events venue, are proud to be part of a team that has been awarded a Healthy Stadia Plaque of Recognition. The presentation of the plaque took place at the first-ever floodlit England v India T20 match at Old Trafford.
Peter Ash, sales manager at The Point said: “The healthier and sustainable eating option initiatives our catering team has created for The Point has helped towards the stadium being awarded this Healthy Stadia Plaque. We are especially proud as this is the first to go to a stadium operated by a county cricket club.”
Peter adds: “This was the first time we have had hospitality for an International with The Point bathed under floodlights, which was a unique experience for staff and guests.”
Lancashire Chief Executive Jim Cumbes commented: “I am delighted that Old Trafford is being recognised as a healthy stadium. We have made huge strides in these areas in the last couple of years and receiving the award illustrates the Club’s commitment to promoting key health messages to visitors to Old Trafford as well as our local community.”
The plaque presentation wasn’t the only pitch-side action. Guests attending were also treated to the appearance of two very famous Manchester legends. Ex England Internationals Sir Bobby Charlton and Mike Summerbee joined LCCC’s James Anderson to show off the Premiership and FA Cup trophies with James holding the ICC mace, which is presented to the best Test playing nation.
The Nat West England v India T20 game ended in a win by 6 wickets for England.
