Golf Day - 14th SeptemberNew!
Dear Colleague and friend,

2022 is an exciting year for all at CWCC.

As you are most probably aware, we are expecting to complete the construction of our new Pavilion by early September. The club would like to thank you all for your support so far with this project.

The club increasingly needs support from its members and friends.

As our chairman has mentioned previously, the club has a substantial amount of money to raise to make this project a success.

Throughout 2022, our fundraising sub-committee have many events planned to help reach our goal to provide a fantastic facility for the future young cricketers of Chorleywood.

SAVE THE DATE! - CWCC Golf Day at Moor Park GC – Wednesday 14/9/2022

The intention is that we will stick with the formula which worked well in March 2020, pre-Covid.

The day will include:

• Traditional brunch at 12.00 with tea, coffee andbacon rolls

• 18 holes of golf (Shotgun start) with prizes for Longest drive, Straightest drive and Nearest to the pin. A prize also for the winning Fourball!

• 3 course dinner from 19.30

• Fundraising auction

We will also be organising the day again, as we did in 2020, in Partnership with Mission EmployAble.

The cost of the day will be £135 per individual person or £500 for a four ball.

Those who are unable to make the golf but would still like to join us for the 3 course meal and auction can do so at £60 per person.

Hurry to secure your place.

We are grateful for the assistance of Mission Employable in making their on-line booking system available to us for this function.

Jack SmethurstNew!
It is with great sadness that we report the passing of Mr Jack Smethurst, Vice President and long time Friend of CWCC.

Jack's career is well documented as a much loved TV personality but also a local man who's family were well known to everyone at the club.

Our thoughts are of course with Jack’s family and friends.

Pavilion updateNew!
Update on fundraising for the new cricket pavilion

As the new cricket season shivers into being and youngsters look once more at the sad reality that is our current pavilion the Cricket Club can’t but long for the day the new pavilion is ready. And with huge amounts of work now completed behind the scenes on developing training programmes, safeguarding policies and a host of other things that are needed for the young people Mission EmployAble will train and employ in the café there, everyone at Mission EmployAble is similarly desperate for the Pavilion to spring into being.

But first we need the money! Let us share with everyone in Chorleywood the great news of our fund-raising success to date. We are quite certain we are now in a position to start building very soon.

Fund raising has continued throughout 2020/21 despite all the COVID restrictions and has been very successful. We have raised over 80% of our target funds to date, including £100,000 pledged by Sport England. We have nearly a million pounds in the bank and pledges from reputable grant making charities for another £730 thousand including the Sport England commitment. This is enough to cover the building costs and, thanks to the offer of a generous interest free loan to be available if required, we are now ready to start the building of the pavilion with confidence. But we still have to raise funds to pay back that interest free loan, to pay for a pilot project for Mission Employable and to pay for the start up costs of the café. So during the remainder of this year we will continue to fund- raise.

To allow everyone involved to sleep well at night, a large UK based charity has pledged to underwrite the entire cost of the build, thus guaranteeing that nothing we can think of will stop money being available to get the pavilion completed.

The Parish Council has asked us for certain guarantees and assurances which we are talking to them about. As soon as these discussions are completed, we will be in a position to start the building and we are all excited about the prospect.

We would like to thank both the local Chorleywood community and the wider community for the support for this project to date. We have had many kind words of support given to us and people have responded incredibly generously to all our fund-raising events.

We now look forward to a new cricket pavilion and a new community café that will equip and train young learning-disabled adults for employment in the local area and provide a wonderful facility for cricket, refreshments and facilities on the Common.

More fund-raising events are planned for the remainder of 2021 which will be advertised locally soon, including an additional day on the 3rd May to see the Bluebells as local support resulted in the 2nd May being sold out!

Thank you again for your continuing and much appreciated support,

Steve Dunning Chair, Chorleywood Cricket Club

Katharine Weston Chair, Mission EmployAble
