The 14th October is a busy night for those at Woking and Horsell as the Woking Sports Awards take place on the same night as the AGM. We will be well represented at the event as Damien Honey and Tom Harlow have ben nominated for awards. Damien has been nominated by Surrey County Cricket Club for the Outstanding Services to Sport Award, for his excellent work on the Bedser week, while Tom has been nominated for the Sports Personality of the Year Award due to his superb performances in getting the 4thXI promoted. Good luck to both of them.
The Woking and Horsell Cricket Club Annual General Meeting will take place on Wednesday 14 October at the clubhouse, starting at 8.00 sharp.
Please ensure that you attend in order to vote upon the key issues impacting the club in 2015/2016.
An AGM agenda and full documentation will be available via email soon. We hope to see you on 14 October.
Thank you very much indeed to the few that came down to the club on Saturday to help tidy up following a long season. It is much appreciated. The club has now been put to bed for its winter hibernation.
Many of you will have already seen our fantastic new kitchen and it is with great pleasure that we formally announce the completion of this latest stage of improvement works at the club. The work was undertaken by James Allan, a friend of the club, and we extend our thanks to him for an excellent job.
We were delighted to receive a grant of £3,000 from the ECB through their Small Grants Scheme and very pleased to invest a further £1,000. The ECB, in awarding the grant, have recognised the great work that the club does in promoting cricket, particularly among the colts section, and the importance of excellent facilities in support of this.
We will continue to look at ways of improving the facilities at the club and would welcome any help you are able to provide in this endeavour.
The Surrey Championship League Dinner will take place at the Oval on Friday 2 October and we have a promotion to celebrate! It's always a good night so why not come along and celebrate a long, successful season. It would be particularly good to get as many of the 4thXI squad along as possible.
We have won the Fair Play Trophy on several occasions recently so it will be interesting to see if we have retained our title.
Tickets are priced at just twenty pounds, which is heavily subsidised by the club and just half of the actual ticket price, which includes a three course dinner The after dinner speaker is Surrey and England's very own Graeme Thorpe.
The dinner starts at 7.15 and the dress code is lounge suits.
