Hugh Griffiths - Directors (Marketing and PR)
People may know me for my involvement with Newclose, since moving to Bembridge in 2009. My cricket links with the Island go back to the late 1940s, with a photo of me holding a cricket bat in front of my grandmother’s beach hut at Puckpool, whilst on a family holiday. The intervening 70 years have seen my love of cricket and the Island growing from those roots. I’d be pleased to do more for cricket in general and IWCB in particular.
