Message from the chairman – 9th July 2020

As you are aware the clubhouse opened successfully last weekend thanks again to Birdy and Pete Davis. This weekend there is cricket again. Hurrah. The 1st X1 play a friendly against Winterbourne following the guidance from the ECB. Spectators are welcome but must respect Social Distancing and also follow the rules if they wish to use the clubhouse. On Sunday there is an Intra club match with Team Trainor Junior playing Team Glew. Please see the Website for details of both. 

Youth Training will now start again for all from Under 9s to Under 13s and all girls on Friday 17th July at 6.00 p.m. Under 15s training will begin on Thursday 16th July. Chair of Youth, Wigs Catto will be sending out further information and asking parents to register their children on line. The clubhouse will be open but again we ask people to follow the rules re Social distancing etc. If there is any chance of inclement weather the sessions will be cancelled as social distancing would be impossible in the clubhouse. 

As we have now opened and have committed to not ask for subscriptions this year, we are in need of more donations to ensure the club comes out of the other side of this difficult time financially secure. We have lost our main sources of income with The Ball, The Beer Festival and Speed Awareness Courses all being cancelled this year.  I am therefore asking again if you use the club in any way, as a player or a user of the bar,  please donate using the Just Giving link that follows. Obviously ignore this if you are one of the people who have donated already. A massive thank you for Ali Bray for his work on this and also to Treasurer Mike Fishwick who will be keeping his fingers crossed that people use this facility. The good thing is that the link enables donations to be gift aided.

Thank you in anticipation for your help. John Evans (Evo) Chairman
