CricketForce Weekend - 28th and 29th March 2015
Galloway Cricket Club was delighted to have been chosen as one of only three "focus clubs" for Cricket Scotland's CricketForce weekend!
TheJewson CricketForceScheme is a club-based initiative aimed at rejuvenating Scotland`s cricketing facilities by encouraging cricket supporters, local communities, and their friends and families to volunteer to undertake renovations at their local cricket club in the lead up to the season. The scheme follows in the footsteps of a similar programme run by the ECB that has been hugely successful in promoting the profile of club cricket.
Galloway Cricket Club held a hugely successful Maintenance/ Family FUN Day at the ground in Gatehouse on SUNDAY 29th MARCH 2015. So many volunteers came along to lend a hand and get stuck in as we carried out repairs and maintenance on our clubhouse in preparation for the coming season. We were extremely lucky to have had guests from Cricket Scotland join us for the day - Grant Bradburn (National Men's Coach), Ian Sandbrook (Head of Community Development), Sam Stibbs (Cricket Scotland's placement student) and Kari Carswell (National Women's Coach) all got stuck in with the rest of the troops! Throughout the day there was also music, provided by the Indoor Kites (an extremely talented young band from Kirkcudbright Academy), a barbecue, lots of cakes and tea, fun games and plenty of work was also completed amongst all the fun!
