Charlbury Community Centre has four cricket nets, floor mats, stumps and options to hire bowling machines that will ensure indoor training can take place all year round. The advanced lighting system (up to 1100 lux) and layout meet the English Cricket Board’s Premier/National League Club standard i.e. for those clubs competing in regional or inter-county competitions. We are very grateful to the England & Wales Cricket Board (ECB) and Oxfordshire Cricket Board (OCB) for providing the funding for the nets and cricket equipment.
There are many cricket teams in the surrounding area and the facilities are open to all cricket clubs in the West Oxfordshire district. The OCB has also committed to using the facility as a key location for the youth county and district assessments in 2017/18.
Individual players are very welcome to join the Charlbury Cricket Club sessions that cater for youth, men and ladies cricket at all standards. You can find information and contact details in the Charlbury Cricket Club website: https://www.charlburycricketclub.com/ or contact Paul Jenkins on 07786 274234 or via email at email@example.com
We have a fantastic line-up for the Charlbury Variety Show on 10th November and tickets are now available from the Community Centre Reception desk, price £12 each, which includes a light supper. The show will be in the Memorial Hall.
TG's cafe is now offering baked potatoes at lunch time, with a choice of fillings: cheese, baked beans (or both), tuna and sweetcorn with mayo. Why not stay for lunch after your sporting activities, or drop in for a tasty, warming lunch? More hot snacks may be offered soon, depending on demand.
We'd love to reunite you with your possessions! Most items will be kept for 14 days. Valuables such as watches, jewellery and expensive sports equipment will be kept for 28 days. Each Wednesday between 1 - 5pm unclaimed items will be displayed in the centre and can be purchased for a nominal amount. After this, they will be given to charity.
The next quiz night will be Wed 24th October, set by Andrew Chapman. The café and bar open at 7.30pm for a prompt start at 8pm. Priced only £5 per player, these quizzes are usually a sell-out so get your tickets soon from reception. More details here. A big thank you to Simon Walker for hosting last month's event.
