Opening of the New Pavilion, 17th August 2008
Our new pavilion was formally opened on Sunday 17th August 2008 by Tim Tremlett, Director of Cricket for Hampshire County Cricket Club.
Malcolm Hooker, our President, paid tribute to the many members of the club and the local community who helped with the completion of the building by contributing their time and professional expertise in carrying out electrical, plumbing, decorating and glazing work. The new pavilion is now one of the largest and best in the area and will prove a real asset to the development of both Youth and Senior teams. The main funding providers included Defra under their Rural Enterprise Scheme, the Foundation for Sports and Arts, and North Dorset District Council. It took at least four years planning to raise the necessary funds.
Guests at the opening included Ken House, Chairman of the Dorset County Cricket Club, shown here with Tim Tremlett on the left and Malcolm on the right.
