End of Season Presentation Evening

Time to think about the end of season bash.  This year it will be held at Pounds Close, as per last year, and will be on Saturday 21st September, 2019.  From approx 7.00 – 7.30pm.

The cost to non playing members will only be £10.00 per person.  The players go free as the cost is covered within their playing membership fee.

Presenting the awards to the worthy recipients for both the men and the ladies will be Gloucestershire County Cricket’s South African star Graeme Van Buuren.

Please ring or let Dave Poultney know if you wish to come so we may cater for sufficient numbers, thank you.  Dave can be found at the club most weekends or call him on 07896 610820


Advent Lunch

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 


Spring Ball

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.

A message from the chairman

“I just wanted to thank everyone who contributed to the last two weekends. The Saturday Pink Day and the Ladies & Girls Festival Pink Day were a great success. Many people worked so hard to put the events on and so successful was it, that just over £2,300 was raised in total over the two days. I am sure you will agree that this was a great effort and shows the tremendous spirit in our club.  So many individuals put in special efforts, too many to name actually, but however you contributed once again a huge thank you”.

John Evans (Chairman).
