From the Chairman – February 2021

Welcome to you all and hopefully to a full season of cricket. At the time of writing to you all we are
still uncertain if we can start on time but things are looking more hopeful with the current roll out
of vaccinations.

Last year will last in the memory for many reasons but the Lords victory will never be erased. I still
pinch myself when hear or see the words “Colwall CC the National Village champions 2020”. An
incredible run of success in a competition we have dreamt of winning for sometime now. It just
shows some dreams do come true! Very shortly this years draw will be made so please watch out
for the forthcoming communications.

The close season has been extremely busy and I am delighted to say that by the time the leaves
and flowers are exploding into life through the spring sunshine our nets will be completely
refurbished. The total cost of £14,000 has been achieved by personal donations, monies from
Herefordshire Council and lots of hard fundraising efforts by members.

In addition we have undertaken internal redecoration of the main and ghost meadow pavilions. All
improvements which needing doing and I hope add to the feeling that we are moving significantly
forward in our aim to improve the environment for all members.

Much consideration has been given to our membership structure over the last 12 months with the
objective being to make everyone feel part of our great club. One significant step forward is that
our Junior membership offering will now incorporate all family members allowing them to enjoy all
the social aspects that we offer. Senior membership will now include an option for spouses/
partners to be identified within the club membership, something that has been missing in the
past.

To support the new membership packages you will receive an membership card which provides
you with that personal identification of our club and allowing you to access a number of special
offers which will be available throughout the season. A club car sticker will also be part of the
new marketing membership package.

Within this communication I have only mentioned just a few of the developments that are under
way. As ever your support both on and off the pitch is absolute key to our success. I do believe
we have something very special developing and I want to make sure we take CCC to another level
over the next few years

Thank you to everyone for your support it is appreciated and valued. I look forward to seeing new
and old members at the club this season.

All the best and please stay safe
Kim
