IT’S YOUR NEIGHBOURHOOD
Frocester Cricket Club received an outstanding mark of 89% winning the Heart of England in Bloom for 2019.
A simply fantastic effort and a huge thank you to all the volunteers involved. Special thanks to Andrew Marson for all his efforts.
The Royal Horticultural Society’s It’s Your Neighbourhood campaign is part of the wider Britain in Bloom initiative, providing an opportunity for smaller community groups to get involved.
RHS It’s Your Neighbourhood is a unique scheme for volunteered led community gardening projects/groups who are focused on improving their local environment through community gardening. They can be working in their local street, estate where they live, a back alley they share with their neighbours, or the local community centre’s outdoor space. Almost any outdoor site being looked after by the local community qualifies for this scheme. RHS It’s Your Neighbourhood is an inclusive, non-competitive scheme, a group can be made up of any number of community volunteers.
The marking sheet was split into 3 sections as follows:
Section A: Community Participation – 40 out of 40 marks
Section B: Environmental Responsibility – 25 out of 30 marks
Section C: Gardening Achievement – 24 out of 30 marks
In the words of introduction on the result sheet it read; The clubhouse (one of the largest buildings in the village) and grounds set in wonderful surroundings. Is this a cricket club or a community hub?
There already plans afoot to make it even better in 2020, watch this space. Or better still come to Frocester Cricket Club and see for yourself.
It will soon be Christmas! What better way to start the advent season than with the Advent Lunch at the Club. You know the format by now. Book early to avoid disappointment as again this is another event that will sell out.
The first Sunday in December, which happens to be the 1st December, 2019
Yes that’s right, we haven’t finished this current playing season yet and we are already talking about next year.
A spring ball is being planned currently for Saturday April 4th, 2020. The cost will be £60 per person and it is advisable to consider booking your place as soon as possible as this event usually sells out very quickly. Tables of 10 will be available should you wish to make a group booking. Please contact Dave Poultney in the first instance.
The format will be the usual 3 course meal, drink on arrival, professional photographer to capture your best side, large fully stocked bar and entertainment in the form of ‘Tommy & The Fuse’.
Always a popular and enjoyable evening so write that date in your diary please. Better still make that booking.
Away from the club for a moment:
Just down the road in Coaley is a charity event worth considering on Saturday 19th October.
40th Frocester Beer Festival
