SPORTING pupils were cheered on by their MP when she visited their school to present it with new equipment.

Louise Mensch, MP for Corby and East Northamptonshire, called in at Corby Old Village Primary School to present an Asda Kwik Cricket set to pupils. She made the presentation to encourage more children to take part in the retail giant’s Kwik Cricket competition. The school was nominated by Northamptonshire County Cricket Board to receive the equipment.

Mrs Mensch said: “Kwik Cricket is a great way for both girls and boys to get active and have fun. The Asda Kwik Cricket competition already involves more than 12,000 primary schools, so it’s fantastic to see schools participating in the competition.”

Asda director of external affairs and corporate responsibility Paul Kelly said: “Kwik Cricket is a fantastic way for youngsters to have fun and get active.”
