Club AGM

All members are invited to the 2022 Club AGM.  As previously advised, this will be at 6pm on Sunday 27 November, in the Clubhouse.  Relevant documents can be found here:

 At the AGM the roles of President, Treasurer and Secretary have to be confirmed.  The existing office holders are again standing for election, as shown in the agenda.  Proposals for other candidates should be sent the secretary at [email protected] by 22 November.  (Apologies for the short formal notice. My earlier email had invited offers of candidacy, and no replies have been received.)

The meeting will be an opportunty to get an overview of the Club, its finances, and the state of each section.  Please support us by coming along.

Car Park closure 2 and 3 November

The tall trees beside the car park were partially destroyed by the storm earlier in the year, and the remainder are in a poor state.  The decision has been made to remove all the remaining trees.  This work will be carried out on Wednesday and Thursday this week.  For those days, the car park will therefore be unavailable all day.  Parking in the neighbourhood is generally permitted apart from 10 till 11 am, but please check signs.

Pedestrian access will continue on the bowling green side of the car park.  If you are moving around the works, please keep as far away from them as possible.

The board have not settled on a replacement for the trees, but we propose to review the situation once they are gone.

Club AGM date/ Groundsman

The Club AGM will be held on Sunday 27 November at 6pm in the Clubhouse.  Details will follow, but meanwhile please let me know if you are interested in taking up a role on the board.

You may have noticed that we have a new groundsman.  He is Bharat Bhanderi, and has made a great start over the last three months, notably by improving the state of the cricket pitch.  Feel free to introduce yourself, and by all means share any ideas to improve the grounds.

Good news

This Saturday, a win for our Cricket 1st XI secured them the Division 1 league title, and also confirmed promotion back to the Premier League of Middlesex Cricket.  We have not won this title before, and it is excellent to have swiftly reinstated our position in the Premier League.  Well done to all concerned!

Our Tennis section has not been lagging either, with the men's 2nd and 4th teams each promoted a Division, the ladies' 1st team remaining in the premier, as well as six of the junior teams winning in their respective leagues.

Go Brondesbury!

Filming on site Wednesday 3 August

This is just to let members know that we will have filming on site today from 3:30 pm till 9 pm.

'Unknown Chefs' is a 4-part series following different cooks and cuisines. 

There will be 20-25 'guests' and a BBQ on the patio area.  They will also use the kitchen.

Raising money!

The Clubhouse

A recurring item of discussion by the Board and members is the rather poor state of the Club's main pavilion.  Actually the bar is now looking very nice, but the other facilities are in need of major work.  The Board have begun a review of options to make the clubhouse suitable and attractive for our and the visiting cricket teams, and possibly beyond that to upgrade it to a clubhouse that all the Club members would be proud of and wish to use for a variety of activities.  It will be no surprise that the cost is going to be large, very large or very large indeed - depending on how far we go!  The ideal way forward would be to obtain grants from e.g. Sport England, the ECB, the Lottery Fund.  Is there anybody out there who has some experience of working with potential donors and could help us initially to sound out what the potential is, and then with the detailed application process?  If so (or if you have a couple of million waiting for a good home...) please get in touch with me at [email protected].  I am also happy to hear from members with strong views as to what we should be doing with the clubhouse.
