February Newsletter

We have a lot of news and events coming up so here is a newsletter for you all to enjoy.

Colts Registration Night – Friday 1st March

The first thing we will tell you about is colt’s registration night. This will be held in the pavilion on Friday 1st March at 7pm. There will be a short meeting and then we will ask parents to fill out forms for their children and pay the required signing on fees. The fees are just £25 per child. We are also doing a deal that if you pay an extra £20 on the night, that will then also cover your child’s training costs for the season. We are planning on running at least 14 outdoor sessions during the season, each session is £2 a child.

The bar will be open during the night, and it will be a good opportunity to meet the managers of the team’s as well as fellow parents. If you cannot make the night then please request a registration form from Mike Askew or Dan Rive.

All Stars Cricket

We are delighted to announce we will be running the All Stars programme once again for 5-8 year old children.

All Stars Cricket is an action-packed, fun programme of game based activities that will help develop the fundamental movement skills your child needs for an active life. Throughout the eight weeks, your little All Star will be learning lots of new skills, making friends and most importantly having an exciting summer!

Our centre will run from Friday 17th May to Friday 5th July. You sign your child up HERE.

Race Night – Saturday 2nd March

We are hosting a race night organised by Gerry Kimber. Gerry has been raising money for Batokunku Lower School in Gambia. In recent years, the money that Gerry has raised, £3000, has meant the school could install running water. Gerry is now hoping to raise enough money, £6000, so that the school can install a proper toilet facility for its pupils and staff.

Tickets for the race night cost £5. These can be bought from Gerry or Ian Birbeck. The cost includes entry and Curry or Chili.

The money raised from the night will be split between Gerry's project and the cricket club.

Over 30 tickets have been sold already.

First race will commence at 7.30pm.

Hope to see everyone there.

Cricket Force – Saturday 6th April

The annual cricket force day is on Saturday 6th April from 10am. Please come down and help get our ground ready for the season.

Quiz Night – Friday 12th April
