Peter Smith, WHCC Club Chairman, recently collected a cheque for £290 from Neil Fox, Senior Building Manager at Willmott Dixon. Willmott Dixon are currently constructing WWF UK Living Planet development in Brewery Road, and in August last year staged a charity cricket match at Brewery Road. The match brought together staff from Willmott Dixon, WWF and several sub-contractors. The cricket club were also represented in what was a real community event. Integration into the community is a key aim for Willmott Dixon, as it is for WHCC and we have every intention of a repeat event for 2013. Thank you to all involved and in particular to Neil and his team for the generous donation.
Spring may not be quite in the air just yet but the season will be underway before you know it, so why not get ahead of the game and pay your subs now? We’ve made life easy for you with senior rates being held at the same level for the 5th year in a row and the application process also remains unchanged. Most members took advantage of paying and completing their application online last year so this is something we shall repeat for the forthcoming season.
Subs remain at a discounted rate for those who pay before 31 May. To complete your membership online all you need to do is:
We’re still happy to receive the paper membership form (return address included) and a cheque via post if you’d prefer. You can also hand these personally to the Membership Secretary, Nick Tune, or your captain. Please do make every effort to pay your subs on time as this does assist the running of the club and based upon the continued strength of membership, we do expect to show selection preference to paid up members from June onwards.
Hopefully that’s all self-explanatory but please contact Nick Tune if you have any questions.
2013 looks set to be another very exciting year of cricket in the UK. England hosts the ICC Champions Trophy before we welcome the Aussies back to our shores for a highly anticipated (if uncompetitive) Ashes series.
And we should all be looking forward to another very successful summer for W&HCC. 2012 was a standout year for the club and is going to be a hard act to follow:Read more: Cricket Chairman’s Letter 2013
The New Year is here and that means we need to get started on preparations for WHCC’s 2013 season. As you may know, Woking Leisure Centre is undergoing refurbishments this winter so isn’t available for our usual Tuesday night session. This, unfortunately, means we have had to make a couple of different net bookings and will need to divide ourselves between these. Whilst not ideal, rest assured that this is only for this winter while Woking Leisure Centre isn’t available.
We have agreed that the simplest way to manage this is to split the sessions by teams so the nets will work as follows:
The price of each session will be £3 per person. U17 £2. We hope to see you there.
The 2012 AGM was held on Wednesday 24th October at the Clubhouse with 25 members in attendance.
A full review of the key activites and achievements of the club was presented and discussed.
The Chairman, Peter Smith, was delighted to announce the award of the ECB Clubmark accreditation and offer thanks on behalf of the club to David Barter for his hard work in achieving this significant milestone for the club.
He also thanked Billy Hargan, Cricket Chairman and Jenny Way, Welfare Officer, for all their hard work and contribution to the Club, as both are stepping down from their respective roles.
The AGM is responsible for the election of the Club's Officers and members of the Management and Cricket Committees and as a result here is the line up for 2012/13:Read more: WHCC 2012 AGM Update
