The Estate’s annual Bonfire and Fireworks Spectacular, held at The Bell on Friday 2nd November, proved a huge success with the crowds and for Stratford Cricket Club. The Bell provided a BBQ and bar whilst DJ Bobby Hunt entertained the adults and children alike. Glowing swords, headbands and windmills could be seen in abundance in the dark, the club ran a tombola and the fireworks were a huge hit.

Alscot held a series of events and fundraising initiatives to support the Stratford Hospital Cancer and Eye Ward £1million Appeal. We were very proud and honoured to be invited to the official opening of the new Stratford Hospital, on 25th Sept, where Emma was introduced to HRH The Princess Royal. Emma was an active part of the board and involved in the furnishing of the wards. It was imperative to Emma that the wards were comfortable for patients, their families and supporters, who can spend many hours at the hospital receiving cancer treatments.
What a glorious evening, on Thursday 19th July, as Alscot hosted the annual cricket event and the Alscot XI took on the RCMA Select XI. The Estate opted to 'bat' first and went about it exceptionally well. The top order were in fluent mood and were soon piling on the runs. After a well-deserved drinks break (with the odd beer doing wonders for the RCMA sporting abilities), RCMA struck back well with a cluster of wickets and kept Alscot to 159 in their 20 overs.
Over 60 guests attended a charity drinks event held at Alscot Park on 14th June 2018 to support GWCT (Game and Wildlife Conservation Trust).
