Happy Hogmanay, Happy New Year, HNY, yep yep that's all done, we can move on.
I don't know about you, but i'm feeling 22. 2022. And what a year it will be. It may not look like it just yet, but it is ours for the taking - the New Year brings plenty to focus on, plenty to celebrate, and plenty of good cricket to keep us occupied. God knows England are giving us slim pickings at the moment.
To start we will be holding a ladies and girls kick-off meeting on Wednesday 19th from 7pm, we are eager to open the meeting up not only to our senior players but also to our juniors, their parents and across our membership so we can start to build a community and a network of supporters across the club that allows us to recognise the rapidly expanding ladies section at Chertsey CC.
There are lots of opportunities to play competitive cricket at all levels, and these continue to grow year on year, we want to build pathways for our younger colts into intermediate and senior cricket. If you are interested in playing, helping us, or just want to be a part of the fastest growing section at the club we would very much welcome your company on the night! The bar will be open...
We are sad to announce that Betty Shepherd passed away just before Christmas at the grand old age of 97, a glorious innings and a life well lived.
Betty's funeral will be on Friday 21st January at 12pm at Woking Crematorium. Betty requested family flowers only, but any donations to the Orchard Dementia Centre would be greatly appreciated.
After the service there will be a reception at the Football Club, to which obviously all are welcome to come back for.
It is also a year to the day of ex-President Jim Denyer's passing, so we shall be raising a cup of tea in his honour tonight.
Til next time.
