MEMBERSHIP 2019 / 20
As you will realise we have now been closed for a number of weeks and there is no sign as to when we may be able to re-open. However Andy is still serving food mainly on a delivery basis and there is more information about this later.
The summer is obviously one of the most popular times of the year for the club and normally apart from our members we would be welcoming 50 or 60 young cricketers to the club on Friday evenings. Sadly that looks as if it will not happen this year .As of yet we cannot say whether there will be any cricket this summer.
When the closure was announced there were a number of other Government statements made which impacted on the club. The first of these was a grant from public funds to help offset the lost income over the summer. We have applied to Torbay council for this grant and are waiting to hear from them.
The second significant announcement related to support for working people affected by closures. Your officers have met with all staff and agreed that, with Government support of 80% of salary, the club will make up all staff salaries to 100% at least until the end of May. Our intention would be to support all of our staff throughout the period of closure if we can.
A number of members have been in touch about membership subs. Your club officers recognise we cannot ask members to pay for something they cannot use. So we will be delaying payments beyond 1st May until we are open and then will charge a fair percentage of the annual fee. If you are feeling generous however we would be delighted to receive you membership full fee by bank transfer to Brixham cricket club sort code 52-10-18 Account number 04132181. Please indicate your name on the payment to help us. Subs are: Single pensioner 11; Pensioner and partner/spouse 17; Social member – non pensioner 21; with family 26.
Finally a reminder that Andy is continuing to cook from Wednesdays through to Sunday each week. On Wednesday to Friday he is offering a collection service at the club from 5 till 6 and then a home delivery after 6pm. On Saturday collection or home delivery from 2pm to 6pm. Sunday roast is for collection or delivery. Full menus are on or facebook page Brixham Catering at Brixham Cricket Club. Please order all food by calling Andy on 07519975811

BCC Charity Christmas Events
Pictured are Nick Hart (Chairman), Graham Luscombe and Mike Smith proudly presenting a cheque for £1200 to Georgia Brooks of Rowcroft Hospice on behalf of Brixham Cricket Club.
The Club over the last thirty years have traditionally used the festive period to raise monies for local charities. This started out at our old clubhouse with a charity quiz and has grown annually, with the help of some committed members to incorporate a charity bingo evening and a darts tournament. These events have raised well in excess of £20,000 for local charities over the years.
This years recipients were Rowcroft Hospice. Their vision is 'to make every day the best it can be for all patients, and their families, living with life-limiting illnesses in South Devon'. A truly well deserving charity.
BCC Committee and Rowcroft Hospice would like to express their gratitude to all members of the club who supported the events and contributed in any way to this fantastic total. In particular thanks go to Nick Hart, Graham Luscombe and Mike Smith who organised the quiz, darts and bingo nights. Thanks also to Exeter Chiefs Rugby Club, Exeter Racecourse, Woodlands, Princess Theatre and Eileen Mackellar who donated auction lots. The total also includes a donation from the Club.

2019 ALL STARS
COLTS V PARENTS
To coincide with the Cricket World Cup, currently underway, Brixham Cricket Club hosted an inaugural match between Colts and their Parents at the Club .
14 Colts took on 12 parents in a match where the result was in doubt until the last ball .Clearly a number of parents had spent most of the summer practising their bowling in their back gardens and were able to restrict the colts to 103 in the overs allocated.
Despite the Colts showing great respect for their elders when bowling ,a number of Adults clearly had a very good eye and were very effective hitting 'across the line'.
Come the final over the Parents needed nine to win and with two balls left this had been reduced to seven .The penultimate ball sailed into the long grass for 6 leaving the scores level .As the fielders crowded in to stop the single a dot ball ensured the match ended in a tie at 103 runs each side .
Many thanks to all who took part in a very enjoyable afternoon which could well become a regular annual fixture
