Bere Regis Cricket Club - Roll on covers appeal
Bere Regis is a thriving, rapidy growing
club in Dorset, with a first eleven in Dorset League Division One, a
second eleven in Dorset League Division 6 and three youth teams at
Under 11, Under 13 and Under 15. There are also plans to join the newly
formed Dorset TT25 league this season, offering even more people the
opportunity to play the nation's premier summer sport. Furthermore, the
club has also just signed up to become a centre for the exciting new
'Cricket All Stars' project, about to be launched by the ECB to attract
more 5 to 8 year olds into cricket.
Our ground is already maintained to a
high standard, but this doesn't stop us from looking at ways to improve
further, particularly as the increased number of teams will add even
greater demands upon the square. The covers will enable us to protect
the square from the elements and to play more games at all levels.
We have been granted some funding
towards the £4,200 required through the ECB 'Get the game on'
small grants scheme, but there remains a £1,800 shortfall,
hence our appea. Please click here. for more information

permanent logo/sponsor's name printed on the covers, constantly visible
to players, officials, supporters and passers by on the local main
road. Your name and logo can also be printed on our 2017 and 2018
fixture card and of course, you will be our guest at all social events
for the next two seasons.
As well as a letter of
thanks to acknowledge your support, you will also receive an invitation
to join us for tea at one of our first eleven home matches.
You will be made a
Vice-President of the club for the 2017 and 2018 seasons. This enable

social events, including the annual President's v Chairman's match.

Cricket Section Launch Crowdfunder Page
gained a substantial grant through the ECB Small Grants scheme two years
ago to build the patio link between the old and new clubhouses, the
cricket section has been successful with another application this year.
Nationally, the theme this time around was 'Get the Game On' and we've
been awarded £2,500 towards the cost of 'wheel on covers' to protect the
square from rain. BUT, a further £1,800 is still required to fully fund
the project and with this in mind the club has launched a crowdfunder
page. All donations are gratefully received and PLEASE pass this link (CLICK HERE) on to anyone else you think may be willing to donate.
Net sessions start on Thursday 2nd March, at Puddletown Middle School, 6.30 to 8.30 pm. All welcome.
