Club for hire…scroll down for details.
Let’s get this show on the road….
Social membership: Please call into the new club to become a social member. Any weekend will be a good opportunity to renew your social membership (or indeed playing membership). At just £15.00 per head it is a bargain to have available such wonderful facilities to enjoy. A simple form to complete and you will be issued with a membership card. For your information during the course of the year there will be random checks on membership cards so if you do join please remember to keep it with you every time you visit.
Forthcoming events: Following a supporters club meeting the other night various events are being organised. Further information will follow but they include a Casino & Cocktails night on 3rd June, followed by a Safari Supper on 7th July. There was talk about ‘Frog Racing‘ – not with real frogs I hasten to add! Of course there is the Beer festival in August, the Awards and Presentation Night in September with the Advent Lunch in December. Confirmation of dates to follow soon.
This year a decision has been made not to knock down the clubhouse again in September so the skittles will return from exile for the winter season.
No doubt there will be various impromptu BBQ’s and other such things throughout the long hot summer ahead, well we hope anyway. Please keep returning as new items will be posted as soon as they are available.
Important news update – Club hire.
The club is fantastic you will all agree, a venue to be proud of, show off and hire out. The ongoing cost to run such a venue are not cheap and even in the old ‘shack’ we struggled to break even at times. Therefore we need to utilise this new building to it’s maximum potential by hiring out the pavilion.
We are actively promoting these facilities to the general public and members to hire for birthdays, christenings, weddings, anniversaries, parties, meetings, local groups etc. The rates to hire the new pavilion, with or without staff are currently can be found under the above menu Event/calendar or by clicking on the link above.
A calendar listing the events will be updated each time a time slot has been booked and confirmed. To view availability you will need to click on the link below to view the calendar.
Once there it is easy to navigate your way through the months by selecting a monthly view, weekly or a daily view. The latter two options are broken down further into 30 minute segments. Once here you can check to see all availability.
Also being planned is a form to download and complete to make any such booking in the future and news of this will be posted here when it is available.
Diary/Calendar of Events
This calendar includes ALL cricket fixtures for the club, senior, youth and midweek.
Dinner is served! This Saturday 15th April witnessed the first of the evening food extravaganzas served following the 2nd XI friendly v Rockhampton CC. All from the brand new kitchen in the brand new clubhouse.
This culinary delight will be a regular event each and every Saturday evening throughout the season. Please come along and enjoy the new clubhouse with a drink and something to eat. No need to book just be there before it all goes!
And you thought the only ‘a la Carte’ was the one being pulled behind Nogger’s tractor.
