As the season comes to an end ……………..

Housing Development – September 2019 update

 

As the 2019 season has now finally ended, for those who have not been down to the Club in the past two weeks, the building work has now started in the Southern Field adjoining our beloved Ground, following clearance of the vegetation there. By the time the season starts again in April 2020, the area will undoubtedly be transformed further and forever with new neighbours.

Footings and brick work have started to be laid for the first 7 dwellings nearest to the Warwick Road side.

The Eastern Field is also being cleared of vegetation and levelled in preparation of further building work starting, in due course.

Members will be kept updated as to its progress over the winter months, mainly with posts being made onto Social Media and in particular on our Facebook page and Facebook Group – which are both in the club’s name, as well as by email or by posts on here if there is anything major that members should be made aware of, such as news of the paladin security fencing, of the ball stop netting that awaits installation, piping and the dismantling of the disused stable block that adjoins our car parking area.

The Reserved Matters/full planning application for the remainder of the (up to!) 118 dwellings has yet to be heard by the Warwick District Council’s Planning Committee (application reference numbers W/17/2150 and W/19/0784) for final permissions and discharge of any conditions.

Documents associated with the development can be found on the Council Planning portal under the above numbers and also under W/19/0322 (which is the one for the 7 dwellings currently being built).

Liaison continues with Bovis Homes over numerous matters by the Club and by its independent Chartered Surveyor that we have engaged.

Last week’s image of the commencement of the dwelling nearest to the Ground is below:

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, Mr. KCC

Geoffrey unbeaten on 65*

 

The Club and all his friends there wish Geoff, otherwise known as Mr. KCC, its thanks on his birthday and wish him all the best.

Such an unassuming chap, he kept his birthday very quiet but the cat was let out of the bag!

Without his commitment to cricket and to our Club, it would be hard to surpass his efforts on not only the field of play but all that he does for us on the Ground to get matches on and all the many other hats he wears behind the scenes that few notice or even appreciate.

He is unique.

HE SHOULD BE APPRECIATED AND THANKED BY ALL FOR HE DOES FOR US AND THE CLUB.

Best wishes, Geoff and HAPPY BIRTHDAY, keep going and keep taking wickets!
