FUNDING UPDATE ........
Our applications to the Veolia Environmental Trust for £70,000 and Power of Giving for £10,000 have been rejected which meant that our application to Sport England for £50,000 would be in jeopardy if we were unable to demonstrate other partnership funding by the 1st July. The England & Wales Cricket Board has contacted Sport England and through their loan/grant scheme will award us a FABULOUS £75,000 !!!! We have now received a 'letter of intent' from Sport England stating that they will provide us with a grant of £50,000 subject to certain stipulations. We are well and truly on our way........

ECB Clubmark & Focus Club Accreditation.
We originally gained our accreditaion in 2007. Following a detailed inspection on the 17th May 2010 the club passed with flying colours and our accreditation was approved for a further three years. Our paperwork was approved by the ECB in February 2013 and we had an inspection on the 8th July 2013. Our new certificate can be viewed in the clubhouse.
Strokes, blood clots etc.
This is for everyone. If somebody stumbles unaccountably they may have had a stroke. Ask them to smile, to say a simple sentence or raise both arms. Also ask them to stick out their tongue and check if it is crooked. If they cannot do any of these simple things call the emergency service as they may have had a stroke. Time is of the essence you might just save a life!
Our under 11 coach, Paul Griffiths, has his own website. See www.cricketcoach.info
