Nottingham Business Improvement District (BID), the organisers behind the It’s in Nottingham Summer Sofa, presented Notts Outlaws cricketers Jake Ball and Greg Smith with a good luck cake ahead of the T20 Blast finals day, taking place at Edgbaston, Birmingham on Saturday.

The Outlaws will be taking on Northants in a semi-final match with an 11am start, hopefully progressing to play in the final at 6.45pm on the same day.

Jake and Greg joined Geoff Williams, one of the Nottingham BID directors, on the Summer Sofa which is located on Pelham Street this week. This is the latest location in the summer long campaign to highlight the different areas of the city that combine to make Nottingham such a great place to shop, eat and go out in.

“We were grateful for the good luck wishes from the Nottingham BID,” said Notts Outlaws and England fast bowler, Jake Ball. “It’s great knowing that we’re going into finals day with the best wishes of everybody.”

“Nottingham is a great city and it’s good to see initiatives like this,” Jake added.  “We enjoyed joining in with the sofa selfie fun and wish everyone good luck in the weekly competition.”

The oversized purple sofa can be found in Hockley next week on Carlton Square (outside Ice Nine) and wherever the Summer Sofa is, people can sit on it and soak up the atmosphere of the area & enjoy the various activities. There is a weekly sofa selfie competition to win a £50 shopping voucher along with offers and give-aways associated with the location.  These will be announced at 10am on various days throughout the week via It’s in Nottingham’s social media channels. Clues of the daily giveaways will also be available at
