Cricket Force weekend – 8th and 9th April 2017

Once again it’s time for the annual work party, and this year the Cricket Force weekend is on the 8th and 9th April 2017, and we are calling for help on one of both days (Saturday and Sunday), so this plea is for all members and friends of Charlbury Cricket Club.

There is a list of jobs to be done and the most urgent of these is to ‘rub-down’ the rear and side elevation (nearest the railway) of the pavilion, ready for painting before the start of the new season. If you can join the team for this task, it would help if you have an electric sander which you are prepared to bring with you, and a pair of steps would be very handy too!!

David Horne (known as Scoop to most of us!!) is in charge of the jobs list, so please contact him to advise which day(s) you can help, so that he can allocated you to a job.  We are suggesting starting the work party at 10.00 am on the Saturday and Sunday, and just a few hours voluntary labour will go a very long way in preparation for the new season.

Can we count on your help please?….if so, please contact Scoop to-day on dw3horne@yahoo.co.uk or mobile:07890 967 715

Many thanks.

Bonfire & Fireworks update and thanks!!

I’m sure that everyone who attended the Bonfire and Fireworks display will agree that it was a very enjoyable evening, with a great bonfire and fabulous fireworks display, and as someone said afterwards “the best one ever”, so our thanks go to Nick Merry and his committed team who have being doing this for years, we are so fortunate to have them….

But we are also very grateful for the way that Michelle (Mish) Whiting organised the whole event, and for all those that helped, not just on the night, but also on Saturday morning and the ‘clearing-up’ on Sunday, not forgetting the help given by members of the Charlbury Beer Festival (our main club sponsor) in providing and erecting the marquees.

BUT……..a reminder that this was the last ‘Bonfire & Fireworks’ event to be organised by the current committee, you could say that ‘they went out with a bang’ and we are very grateful for their hard work over many years.We now need a new committee  to take this ‘main fundraiser’ forward, so we look to the younger club members to come forward and start planning for 2017, and remember, although Mish, Mike and Paul have ‘retired’, they are more than willing to offer advice, so ‘new committee’, please use their lists and knowledge as you look forward to next year’s event.

Colin Olliffe – Chairman CCC
