It is with great sadness that we report the passing of Peter Batchelor, aged 70, following recent illness.
Peter was the President of Perranporth Cricket Club, sharing a similar post with the resort’s football club.
He was a former player, groundsman, scorer and long-serving secretary of the Cricket Club.
He was also formerly the proprietor of the Ponsmere Hotel, overlooking the beach at Perranporth.
The venue hosted the Cornwall Schools Cricket Association’s Presentation Evening for 32 consecutive years from 1984 to 2015.
