AGM Report

The club held its Annual General Meeting on Thursday, 6th December at The Rising Sun. President Dave Mackinney welcomed members and thanked them for attending on a cold, wet evening. He said that 2012 had been a difficult year as the club played a second season out of temporary accommodation following the fire in 2010. There was, however, light at the end of the tunnel. Construction of the new pavilion was underway and he praised the efforts of all those involved in getting the club to this stage. Raising the funds and overcoming a series of obstacles to get the pavilion built is something that every member should be proud of. The new pavilion, when it opens at the start of the 2013 season will be the envy of most other clubs in the area.

The club’s secretary, Gill Coates, reported that the club now had a new, longer term licence to operate in Bushy Park. This had been essential in obtaining grants from Sport England, England and Wales Cricket Board and The Hampton Fuel Allotment Charity. A total of £225,000 had been received from the various funding bodies in order to get the new pavilion project up and running. Another achievement in 2012 was the retention of the club’s Clubmark status. She thanked Nally Fernando and Sarah Savage for their work on this matter.
