Huge thanks to Jeff for inviting Ian to Cove CC for Defibrillator training. We had a great turnout & feel confident that the equipment will be used effectively if needed.
Our annual colts tournament the T6 Blast will take on Monday 6th May. We now have a full quota of 40 teams joining us for the day, so an expected crowd of around 1000+ onsite during the day. The annual colts tournament is a great way of raising money for the club and putting back into youth cricket but we need your help. We are looking for boys and girls 14+ and Mums and Dads that could help us with run the kitchen on the day. We serve Bacon Rolls and hot drinks from 8:30am until lunch time, then just hot drinks throughout the afternoon. We need some willing volunteers to do at least hour in the kitchen on the day and somebody to run the roster. When we light the BBQ at 12pm, we will need to cover the BBQ until the competition closes at 4:30pm, so again any willing volunteers to assist would be very grateful for your help if everyone does an hour it will be easily covered. In addition we run a 50/50 raffle so we need to see raffle tickets through the day. Between 8am and 10am, we need two or three people to help us park the cars on the football club grounds so that no cars are parked onsite to avoid issues. We welcome any homemade cakes that we can sell on the day. So please let me know if you can help. Paul My email address is firstname.lastname@example.org
Reminder: We have recently had a defibrillator fitted in the Clubhouse. We have set up a demonstration of the equipment to be held on TONIGHT at 6.30pm. The demonstration will take place for no more 60 minutes and be given by Ian Pearse from Welmedical.
Reminder: April 13th @ 8pm. If you couldn’t make it due to the snow, then this is your chance to catch the 2019 CCC Panto. Saturday night in the clubhouse!

Dear Member You may be aware that we have recently had a defibrillator fitted in the Clubhouse. We have set up a demonstration of the equipment to be held on Tuesday 9th April at 6.30pm. The demonstration will take place for no more 60 minutes and be given by Ian Pearse from Welmedical. Everyone who uses the clubhouse is invited to attend this demonstration as this will enable people to see for themselves how easy and fool proof this vital equipment is to use in an emergency. It would be wonderful if everyone who uses the club felt confident in using it hence the purpose of this demonstration. Of course we hope that we will never have an occasion where the equipment is needed but it is better to be properly aware than not know how to use this kit in an emergency. We do hope you will be able to come along. The bar will be open! Jeff Smith Welfare Officer
Our official Natwest day is Sat 6th Apr 9am until 12.30pm. The club needs your support and help to get ready for the forthcoming season. Plenty of jobs to do please do come down and help, even if it is just for an hour or two. Many Thanks, Andy Short Director Of Cricket

It is with deep sadness that the Club has to announce that Bob Stratton passed away peacefully on the evening of Wednesday 20th February Our deepest sympathies go out to Gill, Gary, Lorraine, Philip and Natalie. Bob was one of the members responsible for the building of this pavilion and ground. He was a stalwart bowler who played at the highest level. A true friend to so many at Cove Cricket Club. The date and time of his funeral will be published as soon as arrangements have been finalised.
Colts family quiz night. Sat 9th March. You will need different aged brains to get the best out of this quiz. Good luck.
It’s with great sadness we learnt that Andy Minshaw passed away yesterday peacefully with his family by his side after a long illness. Andy invested a lot of time into Cove Cricket Club colts section coaching both boys and girls teams over the years. Andy organised the annual Cove CC trip to Hampshire T20 game which many of you would have attended. Andy was a wonderful person, a great fun to be around and a fantastic coach. Our thoughts go out to his family. Paul
Just another reminder no colts training tomorrow was the Sixth is closed due to the weather. See you next Sunday

The main roads have also been treated and are clear. 4 long hard months of practice won’t be spoilt by a little bit of snow! Please come along and support the team tonight, we’d really appreciate it and, its for a fantastic charity too!
We’ve cleared and gritted the car park and we’re on for tonight! (the roads aren’t looking too bad either!) Be there from 7pm and enjoy the show!
Many hands make light work. Thank you.
