Working party and club update

26 Mar 2019

Hi All,

Hope you are all well and have enjoyed the winter period but with summertime fast approaching with it brings the cricket season and some updates from the club:

Working Party

For those who are not aware every year the ground, clubhouse and surrounding area needs some TLC before any cricket can take place. We have scheduled that for Saturday 30th March at midday, if you have any spades, forks, litter collects or garden instruments please feel free to bring them along. We also need everyone to be tucking into their protein this week as we will be lifting the roll-on net to the top pitch so it is easy to get it on the astro pitch up the top for when we need to use it.

Remember many hands make light work so if we can all make an effort to spare a couple of hours during the course of the afternoon. And if we do not get what we done on Saturday we will have to arrange another working party which may impinge on the preparation of the ground and friendlies for the upcoming season so please do your utmost to make it.


At request of the captains please can we start adding your availability to the website, if you know anyone who has not registered to the website please can you get them to do that ASAP so they will be able to add availabilities and also receive email correspondence from the club via email
