Oswestry Cricket Club – 2018

Just an update for you all on various aspects of the club on the social side going forward for 2018.

Catering – we have begun a fantastic new catering partnership with Hughes Catering – during the winter months.  Jenny and her team have been and will continue to provide good old fashioned hearty food on Fridays from 5pm onwards. The feedback has been truly great especially their pizzas!!! This has worked fantastically alongside her also catering for functions at the club and bringing revenue into the club.

From your point of view-  from the beginning of the season and especially the Junior season – you can be assured that Jenny will be continuing the food options as follows:-

Monday Night – from 5pm

Friday Nights – from 5pm **  (Every 4th Friday will be a themed night) Watch out for details.

Saturdays – from 9am through till 9pm- dependant on demand.  (Breakfast at the club!!!). Hughes Catering will be providing cricket teas.

Sundays – from Midday. These to include Sunday Lunches/Carveries alongside the Hearty menu – returning by popular demand. All we ask is that either after/during Junior games or before/during matches on Sundays-  you bring yourself and the family down to support the club.

As you know I am particularly useless at all manual labour. If any parent is willing to lend a hand ,in their specific sphere of work, when things go wrong at the club please let me know. Any savings the club can make really do make a difference.
