Spain Tour to Desert Springs 2020

With insufficient interest amongst members in a return to Desert Springs, the decision has been taken to not go ahead with the Spain Tour in April of next year. We can of course give consideration for a return in later years, should the level of interest be there. Many thanks to those who have offered support.

Neil Price (Tour Organiser)


David Gambie has for several years served as the Clubs President and more recently as Chairman. However, he has indicated that he is no longer able to continue.

We need someone to step up to take this vital role on.

The Club can manage without a President, but having a Chairman is crucial if we are to continue to be able to play the cricket that we do.

Paul Berman & Andy Rose are continuing as Secretary & Treasurer, so there will be continuity of Officers for a new Chairman.

Please give this matter some serious thought, whether as a nominator for a candidate, or for taking it on yourself.
