The Advent Lunch on Sunday, 3rd December held this year at the new clubhouse. 12.30pm  for a 1.30pm sit down. The price is £15.00 per head (I know what you are thinking, how much for the whole body). This will include a Sunday roast with all the trimmings etc. Buy your own wine or preference on the day. Places will be limited to 90 and those places will go very quickly indeed, therefore contact Dave Poultney on 01453 822960 as soon as you can to book your spot(s).
Update – there are still a limited number of places available if you are interested.

There was talk of a paper cutting craft day at the club on a Sunday prior to Christmas and more details of this will follow shortly when confirmed. The date of 17th December has been mentioned.

NEW YEARS EVE – There is a strong possibility of a cricket match on New Years Eve, under lights! This has to be confirmed and is subject to availability of the lights.
However would you like to see in the new year at the  new pavilion? If so please let Dave Poultney know, as per contact number above. Any ideas on what you would like, if the cricket does not go ahead, an American supper perhaps? If enough people are interested then the club will open. It is important then that you indicate to Dave if you wish to be part of the celebrations to see in 2018.

Talking of ideas, at the supporters club AGM last night (21st November) it was agreed that new and fresh social event ideas are needed. So we are throwing this out to each and everyone of you to offer your thoughts for an event. There is no need to join the committee, we will arrange everything, we just need new ideas as to what you would like to see. Just mention it to any supporters Club committee who will take your idea forward.

Committee members: Nicki Pinker, Carolynne Hill, Mel Wellings, Tony Bray, Jim Clarkson, Jim Clements, Jonathan ‘Vegas’ Driver, Rich Tuck, Chris Whincup, Marjorie Hawkins, Sophie Cave, Faye Cave, Pete Davis. (Apologies if I missed anyone).  PLEASE do talk of any of these good people with your ideas for future events, social gatherings etc., I can assure you they will be taken seriously.


Barbados 2019

44 people have now booked with Birdy to stay 14 nights at Infinity on the Beach, St Lawrence Gap, Barbados. Flying from Gatwick on Monday 25th February 2019. The tour goes ahead then and a great time awaits with cricket, rum, horse racing, rum, catamaran trip where there will be more rum and renewing old friendships built up over the past 25 years of touring this magical island maybe over a glass of beer.

There will be a few others joining this tour but staying over the road at ‘Time Out’, a smaller budget hotel on a bed and breakfast option. This is slightly cheaper but nonetheless highly rated hotel is only over the road from the main group. This small band of rebels will travel and do everything with the main tour party but will be hitting the local rum shacks and restaurants instead of eating and drinking at the hotel. 

It’s never to late to join, subject to availability, especially any cricketers wishing to join in this very special and memorable tour. Speak to Eric Bird or Tony Bray for more details.


Forthcoming events in brief: 

  • Sunday 26th November – The Cricket Club AGM
  • Saturday 25th November – The 3rd round of matches in the Autumn internationals. England v Samoa in the afternoon. There will be pasty or sausage and chips after the game.

Conkers! I hear you shout but no it’s true. Start saving your pennies folks for what will be a must attend event.
