LATEST FROM SPORT ENGLAND
On the 24th March we were informed that our application to the Sport England Inspired Fund (£50,000) has neither been approved nor rejected but is pending until the 1st July by which time we must demonstrate substantial partnership funding. So fingers crossed for the applications detailed below.
PAVILION & SCOUT HUT APPEAL FUND - MARCH 2014
The appeal stands at just over £70,000 and we have funding applications in with the Veolia Environmental Trust (£70,000) the Peter Harrison Trust (£20,000) and the Gatwick Airport Community Trust (£5,000). In April we again apply to the Surrey County Council Community Improvement Fund (£50,000). You can donate to the general fund by going to: https://mydonate.bt.com/charities/newdigatepavilionappeal
100% of your donations goes to the appeal. We are still awaiting a registration number but if you wish to gift aid your donation then please fill in a form
Our girl cricketers swam 54 laps of the Dorking Swimming Pool to raise money for the Pavilion Appeal on the 8th March. Go to https://mydonate.bt.com/events/swimarathon/112718
to see how much money they raised. Why not add to their total? Picture under latest news.
Mydonate does NOT make a charge so 100% of your donation goes to the appeal.
NatWest CRICKET FORCE 2014
We will be opening the club house on the 5th April at 10.00 am under the NatWest Cricket Force banner. Please all make an effort to come as there are lots of jobs to be done to get everything ready for the new season.

EASY FUND RAISING
Are you buying anything on line?
Then register with easyfundraising.org.uk and follow the simple instructions. For every purchase a percentage will go to the pavilion appeal without costing you a penny. Many major retailers such as Amazon, John Lewis, M & S, Argos, Domino's Pizza etc. are in the scheme so join up and support your club.
In total nearly 500 people attended the six shows and the Newdigate Theatrical Society has presented us with the entire profit towards the pavilion appeal which amounted to £4000. If you add the grant of £1000 gained through the Heart of the Community Appeal then the total is a magnificent £5000 !
DISAPPOINTING NEWS .... BUT HOPE SPRINGS ETERNAL ...AGAIN
Our funding application for £50,000 to Surrey County Council's Communities Improvements Fund has been rejected twice... but they have advised us to reapply in April 2014

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
