An hour or two to spare this weekend? Why not pop along and help out in good company, and make a difference…
Spring has officially sprung at the SCG and the start of the season is now officially around the corner! Come and join us to prepare the ground and facilities ready for the start of the season.
The first working party weekend will take place this Saturday and Sunday (5th and 6th March), 10am start on Saturday, 11am start on Sunday. There will also be a second working party the following weekend (12th and 13th March).
The time will be used to redecorate and clean the pavilion interior, perform pre-season maintenance work, tidy up the areas around the pavilion, sheds, nets and paint the famous white wall.
It’s all hands to the deck, so any age welcome, and any time you can spare will be much appreciated.
To entice you further there will be bacon butties and hot drinks for the hard workers!
See you there…

Work has begun on the square in readiness for the start of the 2016 season. A bitterly cold day and hailstone didn’t stop our Groundsman getting on the ground over the weekend! Great effort David!
Fingers crossed for a dry spell as we leave winter behind and head in to Spring!
