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
Do you enjoy a game of Scrabble? Would you like some new people to play with? We are experimenting with having some Scrabble afternoons or evenings and if it proves popular we will offer these regularly. The next session is on Tuesday 26th March 2.30-5pm. Cost only £2. In the meantime there are two Scrabble sets at the Centre, which you can use at any time for a game with friends.
Margie Glasgow has been awarded a British Empire Medal in the 2019 Honours list for her contributions to the Thomas Gifford Trust and other local charities. Margie was instrumental in driving forward the Community Centre project and we are very grateful to her. This award is truly well-deserved.
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?
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.
