Exciting News!!

Dave  Mackinney  chose  yesterday,  his  first  President’s  Day,  to  make  the  announcement  all Hampton Hill Cricket Club members have been waiting nearly two years to hear.

THE CLUB NOW HAS SUFFICIENT FUNDS TO REBUILD THE PAVILION AND CONTRACTORS WILL BEGIN CONSTRUCTION IN SEPTEMBER.

The new pavilion is expected to be completed by March, in time for the 2013 season.

Dave thanked Kevin Rice and the rest of the Rebuild Committee for all their hard work and persistence over the last two years.

The last piece of the funding jigsaw was received from the England and Wales Cricket Board late last week, a grant of £99,999. The governing body has also offered an interest-free loan facility to complete the £0.5 million project.

Other  funding  has  been  received  from  Sport  England’s  Inspired  Facilities  Fund,  Hampton Fuel Allotment Charity and The Foundation for Sport and the Arts.

The Phoenix Fund now stands at £62,000 and fundraising will continue during the rebuilding process  in  order  to  reduce  the  loan  requirement  and  to  fit  out  the  pavilion  to  the  highest possible standard. The President asked that members continue to support forthcoming events and consider making a donation if they hadn’t already done so. He also praised the efforts of Sean  and  Joe  Lee-Rice  who  have  raised  nearly  £1,500  with  their  sponsored  Bike  Ride  to Paris.

HHCC  President,  Dave Mackinney  is  joined  by former  Presidents,  Barry Williams and Nigel Coates and  Ann  Crane  for  a ceremony  to  “break  the ground”  in  readiness  for construction  of  the  new pavilion,  due  to  start  in September.
