2018 NEW NETS FACILITY FUNDRAISING APPEAL!!
Exciting news for the season ahead – the committee has approved the replacement of the far nets! Plans for refurbishing the three-lane net facility include state of the art matting, extended bowling pads and adjustable netting to allow different uses of the facility. An example of the type of facility we are aiming for is shown in the picture above.
The current far nets have suffered from wear and tear due to their almost constant use over recent summers and need replacing. The nets are a vital training tool to improve batting and bowling skills, especially for younger players developing their game. Investing in good facilities will benefit both senior and junior members, support the Club's coaching aims and support the long-term future of our community club.
The total project cost is £50,000. We have applied for a £10k grant from Surrey CC and have identified another £20k from the existing cricket budget and significant junior section fundraising.
As a contribution the senior section is asking adult members to donate towards the Nets Appeal using the link below. As a benchmark a number of senior members have already given £250 each towards this exciting project but please give what you can afford. It will all help!
The Club has charity status, so we can claim Gift Aid on all donations (25p for each £1 you donate).

It would be fantastic to have the new nets in place by the start of the season.
Thank you in advance for your generosity!
