We hope that your child will enjoy being a club member and
will enjoy the cricket coaching, and hopefully some matches,
as well as the social interactions available at the club.
Please do ask me – the Club Welfare Officer – or any coach
if you have other questions not answered in this email.

Chairman, Treasurer, Secretary and Groundsman.
We welcome offers of help from all members and volunteers,
and hope that as you feel part of the club you will feel
able to get involved.

Children in Cricket. All of the adults at the club who work

difficulties may arise. Please feel able to raise these as
soon as possible, so we can rectify things at the earliest
opportunity. If you have a question regarding coaching,
