Change of Club Chairman

At the October Annual General Meeting Tom Eaton gave his final ‘Chairman’s Report’ to the meeting, as he handed over the reins to David Horne for the next three years.

The club is greatly indebted to Tom for his committment to the club during these past three years, and much has been achieved under his chairmanship, often under very difficult circumstances, not to mention Covid 19!!. The club is so pleased that Tom will now take on the role as Youth Cricket Manager, and we wish him every success in the future.

Following a meeting of the Projects Committee, a list of proposed projects were  discussed in detail and costed, and then recommended to the Management Committee for approval. For the benefit of club members these are the projects we would like to see happen as and when finances allow:

  1. Refurbished Nets facility: 2. Club House Lounge Refurbishment:  3.  Main Square boundary extension: 4. Old Pavilion upgrade: 5. Outside Tea Tent:

We would like to thank all those who have made donations to the club during the season and in particular to Paul Jenkins and Ajit Shah who have worked tirelessly during ‘lockdown’ to secure a number of grants, which we hope will enable us to start on some of the above projects.

CCC Annual General Meeting

The attached  Organisational Chart for CCC Management was agreed at the AGM on Thursday 22nd October via a Zoom meeting of members.

All the Officers listed will be updated on various headings and hopefully the ‘new system’ will make the running of the club more manageable.

The website will be updated over the next few weeks and it is our intention to notify all members of ‘things as they happen’….Please check the website reguarly.

Update on the financial position of the Club

As you may be aware our Annual fundraising Firework Display was a washout this year; our dedicated team did an incredible job to break even in awful circumstances. What with that and now the postponement of our Spring Ball which is also a great fundraiser; it has left the club in an extremely vulnerable financial situation. It costs about £11,000 per annum to cover the core overheads of the club excluding groundstaff.

The grounds team have committed to carry out essential works at no cost and we have cancelled all commitments that are not fundamental to the clubs survival

No subscriptions will be collected this season until cricket commences; so they have currently been suspended. However we are asking all members and friends of the club to  make a donation if you can.

Please see the donations page and don’t forget to fill in the gift aid form.

We will continue to work with our local cricket board and other charitable organisations to seek support and assistance where we can.
