Club View Sunday 17th. May

An unusual cloud formation in the skies

 

The below image was taken very early on Sunday morning (17th. May) by VP, Clive Peacock, on his morning exercise just after dawn. A most unusual cloud formation above the Club.

It is good to know that the Club, your Club, is being used by Members walking around the boundary edges.

Hopefully, you will notice how lovely it is currently looking, except for some cricket taking place.  A lot of dedicated Ground and Surrounds work has been taking place.

Please do come down to the Club to do your “exercise” and send more images!

 

Club’s Outdoor Nets available from Saturday 16th. May

Club Outdoor Nets sessions.

 

 

The Club’s Outdoor Nets are now available for use by CLUB MEMBERS ONLY from Saturday 16th. May.

Only one net can be used.

Members will NEED to book a net slot by visiting the Club’s Facebook Page (not the Members’ Group) and the Government restrictions must be followed. You can not just turn up at the Club to net on the off chance they are available.

The Club’s Playing Members have been sent an individual email about this.

The updated ECB Guidance can be found on the below link:

https://www.ecb.co.uk/news/1668576/ecb-guidelines-for-the-use-of-outdoor-cricket-facilities-in-lockdown

 

In particular, adhere to the social distancing rules AND meet with ONLY one other person from outside your household for the net sessions. No hanging around to talk to others, nor a third person joining in a net session. 

These Rules CAN NOT be abused under ANY CIRCUMSTANCES.

 

Andy Smith, Hon. Secretary, KCC

Ground View

 

During the current crisis and Lockdown, permitted Groundwork has been and continues to take place on and around the Ground which is looking splendid.

It is a shame that no cricketing activity is currently permitted to take place.

Let’s just hope that there may be some cricket at the club this year and the Club springs back into life for everyone’s enjoyment.

Latest images taken on 6th. May.

Ray’s Corner

View of Kenilworth Cricket Club from Ray’s Corner following a lot of strimming, mowing and square work taking place.

The Ground and surrounds are starting to look well as a lot of ‘necessary work’ has been and is being undertaken.

Hopefully, there will be some cricket taking place at the Club this summer when the current crisis passes by and the Club re-opens.
