Family Fundraising Cricket Day – This Sunday 10th

Family Fundraising Cricket Day

We are very excited to announce the details for our upcoming Family Fundraising Cricket Day this Sunday. The day will run as follows  (all timings are approximate):

10am  –  Juniors cricket match
Midday  –  BBQ Farm shop burgers and sausages
1-2pm  –  Promises Auction
2pm  –  Adults cricket match

All comers are welcome on the day, including non-club members.  Please contact to let us know if you or your children would like to play.

If you are unable to be there on Sunday, but don’t want to miss out on bidding for some of our fabulous promises (see below), you can email with a ‘commission bid’. For this you need to  tell us the MAXIIMUM you would bid for that Lot. As with ebay, you won’t necessarily pay that total amount if you win. Bids will go up in increments so you could win with less than your maximum bid. However, if bidding goes above your maximum bid you will not win.

If you are coming for the juniors match, please stay on to support the adults, many of whom are parents who will be needing all the support they can get! Bring a picnic and make a day of it. The bar will be open all day.

So… here are the Lots for the Auction of Promises! Thank you SO much from all at the club to everyone who has kindly donated and committed to giving up their time. We were overwhelmed by the response. Some items offered were goods rather than services and we have decided to hold these back for another auction later in the year.
