Hinton charterhouse cricket club Despite the weather continually trying to hamper ground preparations the season has got off to a great start. The   youth   have   had   a   bumper   sign   up   with   over   110+   young   members   this   season   and   are   very   pleased   to   have Tom   Baker heading   the   coaching.   They   kick   started   their   season   with   a   highly   successful   U15s   and   Adults   quiz   night   hosted   by   the effervescent Ian Pocock, Head of Youth Cricket, the quiz was won by the J. Johnson table – well done to you all! The   adults   continue   to   field   5   teams   per   week   2   on   a   Saturday   playing   in   the   Wiltshire   Cricket   League,   2   on   a   Sunday,   one League   and   one   friendly   team   plus   our   Midweek   fixtures   which   include   games   against   the   MCC,   XL   Club   and   Wiltshire Queries as well as touring teams from around the UK and distant counties. Village   Boules   tournament:    32   teams   entered   the   tournament   on   the   8th   May,   it   was   a   glorious   day,   not   a   cloud   in   the   sky, brilliantly   organised   by   Christina   and   our   own Tom Tippetts   to   include   a   delicious   BBQ   run   by The   Stag   Inn,   a   great   time   was had by all. Charity Events: We are very pleased to be able to support the following this season: Freshford   School’s   6-a-side   cricket   festival   will   be   held   on   the   30th   May,   all   proceeds   from   which   go   to   the   school.

HCCC   v   Bath   Rugby   Legends   -   Our   adult   1st   XI   team   host   a   rematch   against   Bath   Rugby   Legends   on   Friday   1st   July.

Cricket   The   Game   of   Life:   If   anyone   is   looking   for   a   good   book   to   read,   Cricket   The   Game   of   Life   is   a   must   read,   written by   our   own   Scyld   Berry.   The   book   is   written   with   wit,   irony   and   passion   Scyld   introduces   chapters   on   the   language   of   cricket and   on   its   ethics,   aesthetics,   psychology   and   philosophy. The   book   is   dedicated   to   Hinton   Charterhouse   CC,   with   mention   of our ground staff Ed Meddings and Allan Holley.
Hinton Charterhouse Fete Day Saturday July 2nd 2016 So what a fabulous day, if a little windy, but at least the rain stayed away. A   great   day   was   had   by   all   and   the   Fete   Committee   wishes   to   take   this   opportunity   to   thank   everyone who   helped   out   to   make   it   such   a   wonderful   occasion.   All   donations   to   the   village   stalls   and   helpers really       make       the       day       happen       and       the       dog       show       gets       bigger       each       year. Although   not   hugely   attended,   those   of   you   who   came   to   the   evening   event   were   treated   to   a   real   find. The   young   Indie   band   Mannerisms   were   amazing   and   most   people   danced   the   night   away,   especially some of us from the Fete Committee.... Thank you all again for making this village event a great success. The Fete Committee 2016 PS: As   a   few   of   the   regular   Fete   Committee   members   are   standing   down   this   year,   please   remember how much you enjoyed attending the Fete when new volunteers are needed!! Many thanks.
On   Friday   1st   July   the   Cricket   Club   held   a   charity    20:20   cricket   match   between   HCC Team Members and a team of Bath Rugby Legends.  The   event   was   held   to   raise   money   for   Dorothy   House   Hospice   Care   and   Bath   Rugby Foundation.      Generously   supported   by   local   sponsors   it   was   a   great   evening   of   cricket, with   a   BBQ,   bar   and   raffle   and   the   chance   for   autograph   hunters   to   meet   some   of   their favourite Bath players.
