Provisionally the 2018 Season will open on Friday 13th April at 2pm..

This decision is subject to weather in the proceeding week allowing reasonable lawn drying and also, see below, the successful re-commissioning of our old clubhouse.

Updates will be posted on the website but final confirmation will occur at the April committee meeting on 11th April.

The new clubhouse is built but the provision of ‘services’ has been delayed by the need to move the building 6ft, which was achieved in January.   It looks magnificent in its new coat of ‘LCQC Green’.  Heavy duty floor covering is in place and a new kitchen is installed.   The Sportsfield is now too wet to allow the water and septic tank excavations and installation.    This outstanding ‘groundwork’ now requires a long dry period before it can start and, realistically, our move into the new building may not be possible until mid-June 2018.

Therefore the old clubhouse will be made usable for the early season.   However there will be a period of weeks before we move when the gas system will be removed for re-installation in the new facility.   During this period it will be necessary to bring own flasks for tea and we will have to provide match teas from the large club flasks made at teas person’s home.

Postcode Community Trust is a grant-giving charity funded entirely by players of People’s Postcode Lottery.  Our New Clubhouse received £2000 from the Trust to provide solar lighting for the new clubhouse.

We have received complaints about cars parking by the green gates, thus forcing oncoming traffic into the ‘right turn’ chevron area.   If parked while opening or closing the green gates please put your hazard lights on.  Do not queue behind other vehicles while waiting for the gates to be opened; if necessary drive away and return a few minutes later. This is important since further complaints could lead the Highway Authority to question our continued use of the Green Gates and thus ability to park at the lawns.  Ideally, enter from the Sportsman roundabout direction when arriving since this would be safer and would avoid crossing the chevrons.

The Club Bank Accounts are now ‘on-line’ and the option to make payments to, and receive payments from, the Treasurer via BACS electronic transfer is available.  This method is strongly encouraged to save time and effort for the Treasurer.  Bank details will not be sent out electronically but can be obtained by ringing any committee member.  Once first set-up on your own system, further payments are simple, fast and secure.

However:- It is essential that you use the electronic money transfer ’Reference’ box to identify your payment; use your surname and a single word clue as to what the payment is for.  So the Chairman paying for his Quiz Night ticket would use the Reference ‘SHERWIN QUIZ’.    Simple – but if you don’t use a meaningful reference we get the money but you fail to get the credit!

Emergency Service SatNav takes them to the main gate so there is no requirement to practice opening the Green Gate height barrier.  The Main Gate security has been enhanced by providing shielded padlock arrangements, similar to the Green Gate.

   The numbers to open these gates are displayed in the clubhouse outside the toilet door.

So, if unlucky enough to call an ambulance to the lawns, as a matter of priority a member MUST go to the Main Gate and unlock it. The crew will have to help push it open unless we can send over a strong team.  If there is a spare person available send them to our Green Gate to redirect the ambulance in the unlikely event that it turns up at the Berry Lane Gate.  The Priority must be to unlock the Main Sportsfield Gate.
