The Club' s wooden clubhouse and worksheds need continual maintenance, in particular the roof to the machinery shed needs replacing and both the clubhouse and scorebox need external treatment.
The beautiful grounds, square and net facilities continue to need to be kept in top condition and ready for the commencement of cricket.
What we'll deliver:
- maintenance work to the clubhouse
- maintenance to the gounds
- payments of our outgoings
Why it's a great idea:
During the lockdown, the clubhouse remains closed. No cricket is allowed until at least 1st July. We cannot open the bar and run social events (such as the popular annual 6 aside). Being able to offer any cricket, we have decided not to ask for payment of subscriptions at this time. Thus we have NO INCOME. We still have overheads of approx. £10,000 pa. We are likely to be running into a deficit of several thousand of pounds.
As a member, past or present, this is your club. We owe it those who have gone before us to preserve and enhance Hagley CC. We owe it to current and future players yet to discover the joy of playing cricket at Hagley.
Any money you can spare, £10, £20 or more, will be greatly appreciated so that we can continue to host cricket and social functions.
As a local resident or business, we are blessed to have such a beautiful green space on our our doorstep where children and adults can take part during the summer.
We must preserve this.
We cannot let Covid-19 beat us.
Steps to get it done:
- cover the existing expenditure on maintaining the grounds and clubhouse over the next few weeks
