Upon reflection I have below tried to give a brief description of the duties that would need to be met in the three main positions available on the committee at the forthcoming AGM.


Main task is to co-ordinate and oversee the club as a whole. Weekly tasks would include checking the grounds and clubhouse on a regular basis to ensure everything is secure. Arranging and granting access for repairs etc. Also representing the club where necessary at meetings (usually once a month) when Roger cannot attend.
Chairing monthly committee meetings. Plus any other “firefighting” that may crop up during the season and of course during the close season.


Collection and recording of subscriptions, bar and food takings. Payment of invoices when they become due. Paying to bank of surplus monies, Preparation of quarterly VAT returns and year end accounts. Reporting to committee on a monthly basis of the financial position.


Ensure that the bar is staffed and stocked for all games of cricket. Cleaning the lines on a two weekly basis. Ordering and taking delivery of stock.
Taking bookings and supervising functions. The club may decide not to host functions so this part of the job may not be as daunting as it sounds.

These descriptions are certainly not exhaustive but give a taste of the tasks involved. As I said in my previous musings I am always available should anyone wish to discuss the roles in more detail and would be delighted to talk to anyone at anytime.

Alternatively, Roger Sackfield would be available to answer any questions that you may have.

Don Brown
Acting Chairman
