****Cricket Tour 2015****
It is proposed to have a cricket tour in 2015 subject to sufficient numbers.
The venue will be decided upon feed back from those interested in going on tour. We are currently looking at North Wales, Shropshire or the West Country.
Subject to obtaining suitable fixtures we are looking at a five day tour Monday - Friday commencing either Monday 6th July or Monday 13th July.
You will appreciate that the earlier we hear from you the earlier we can finalise the tour details. In this respect we look forward to hearing from you by Friday 31st October. However at this early stage it will be impossible to advise the cost of accommodation etc.

The ECB continues to work with Sport England on the pioneering club accreditation scheme 'Clubmark' to develop a vibrant and healthy club cricket infrastructure.
Cricket clubs can play a key role in the successful delivery of Building Partnerships – cricket's strategic plan for 2006-2009 - by supporting the delivery and implementation of the following programmes:
The ECB Clubmark and community cricket clubs play a central role in all of these programmes and Clubmark will provide the standards that clubs involved in these programmes will aspire to.
In addition, it is expected that clubs who achieve the ECB Clubmark will be recognised and rewarded for their hard work and commitment to club cricket in England and Wales.
By registering to work towards ECB Clubmark, clubs join a growing number of cricket clubs across England and Wales that are prioritising junior development, creating a benchmark for high quality community club cricket.
County Cricket Development Managers can help clubs through the process of achieving ECB Clubmark Accreditation.
ECB Clubmark gives clubs an opportunity to write and implement new procedures as well as acknowledge existing practices. Cricket clubs are required to present evidence and demonstrate implementation across four different themes, culminating in the production of a Club Development Plan.
