Message from the groundsman

Tuesday 10th April 2018

The friendly arranged for Sunday 15th April has now been cancelled as there is no chance of the ground being ready in time. Therefore the first home fixture is now Saturday 28th April. Before this match can take place there is still a huge amount of work to be carried out at the ground. This includes :
Boundary boards (on far side of ground) need to be put up.
White picket fencing and new fence panels (in front of pavilion) need putting up.
General tidying up of clubhouse and changing rooms (once all the above items have been taken out)
This might seem a small amount of work, but it will need as many people as possible to attend to get this sorted in time for the first game.
The date for the work party is Saturday 14th April at 10.00 am.
Just for your info, a work party was set aside for last Saturday (7th) which was attended by only 5 people, three of whom are over 70 years of age. It was therefore impossible to carry out the above work, although the five who attended have repaired all the potholes in the drive. The work that needs doing is for the benefit of cricketers. Only one cricketer turned up at the work party last Saturday ! We cannot leave this work for others to do !!
Therefore, please do not ignore this post - please make every effort to attend and carry out the work that is needed in order to play cricket.
Whilst I will be in attendance on Saturday, I will be working on the ground in preparation for the season and therefore will not have the time to carry out any of the above work myself.
