Club Cricket Conference annual lunch at LORDS on 25/11/2019

The Club Cricket Conference (CCC) annual lunch takes place on Monday November 25th in the Nursery Pavilion at Lords. Tables of 10 (£750) or £79 per head to include a three course lunch & half a bottle of wine. If you are interested in attending, please contact ROBBIE BOOK (Chairman of the CCC)

Online Banking details:  Barclays A/c No:  2308 5090   Sort Code:  20:96:89


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.
