We were there to win the Ashes!

WHILE local hero Stuart Broad’s Ashes quest was cruelly cut short by injury, we were there all the way to lend a hand in England’s crushing series victory.

Howzat Travel, based at Burrough Court, bolstered the Barmy Army’s ranks by taking along a 300-strong party of fans Down Under to join the Ashes crusade.

The historic tour was a dream come true for Howzat director Ian Kerr who set up the company with friends six years ago. Ian caught the Barmy Army bug when he first sampled an Australian Ashes series while visiting family Down Under in 1999. You can read Ian’s Ashes blog at http://howzattravel.wordpress.com or click here to read the full article in the Melton Times.
