Thank you very much indeed to the few that came down to the club on Saturday to help tidy up following a long season. It is much appreciated. The club has now been put to bed for its winter hibernation.
Many of you will have already seen our fantastic new kitchen and it is with great pleasure that we formally announce the completion of this latest stage of improvement works at the club. The work was undertaken by James Allan, a friend of the club, and we extend our thanks to him for an excellent job.
We were delighted to receive a grant of £3,000 from the ECB through their Small Grants Scheme and very pleased to invest a further £1,000. The ECB, in awarding the grant, have recognised the great work that the club does in promoting cricket, particularly among the colts section, and the importance of excellent facilities in support of this.
We will continue to look at ways of improving the facilities at the club and would welcome any help you are able to provide in this endeavour.
A huge thank you to all of you that turned out for the W&HCC Awards Night 2015. We had a great time putting it together and we hope you enjoyed being there. Despite some disappointing performances from our teams in general there have been some outstanding individual performances. A number of our players have had their best invidual performance ever for the club in the 2015 season. Congratulations to you all. Here is a list of the worthy winners:

During our game on Sunday, one of our players had his car broken into. Theives smashed a window with a large stone and stole a sat nav and other valuables. Please make sure that your valuables are not on show and take extra care when parking at the club.
The winners of our Blue Bails Bowl Out in aid of Cricket United were the Hargan family and Seb Egan who beat the 2ndXI team captained by Oli Guy, much to the delight of everyone else. It was a fairly poor display by the bowlers who were beaten by a team who didn't bowl a ball for the club yesterday! Thank you very much to everyone who took part in the competition. We raised £65 for a great cause.
