ANNUAL GENERAL MEETING
We usually hold our Annual General Meeting at this time of year but due to circumstances this year and the restrictions on public gatherings it has been agreed to postponed our AGM until later in the year when restrictions will hopefully be lifted.
In saying that, and due to the retirement of a long standing member of the committee, we are looking for a new Club Secretary.
Duties include: distributing agendas and taking minutes at committee meetings (roughly once a month) and the AGM annually; being the main contact for external organisations including the council and ordering supplies needed for the upkeep of the ground.
If you are interested or would like further information please Contact Us.
About the AGM: Although we always welcome your views at any point through the year the AGM is the chance for players and non-players, parents of players and even the public to attend and have input into the clubs administration, forward planning for the year and really get involved with the committee and help our club. This meeting is when we appoint our committee members and we do have position available and open. The Committee meets once a month, for about an hour, and is there to help the club run as smoothly as possible.
If you are able to offer even the smallest amount of your time or assistance then please come along to the AGM later this year. It is with your help and support that makes this Club thrive and we need you to be a part of it. Even if you are not able to join the committee the AGM offers an opportunity for you to be involved, to know your Club and to be a part of something that is remarkable! .
The club is always looking to increase participations levels for all adult and junior teams. If you would be interested in playing this summer please contact us via the club website sandycricketclub.co.uk, the club Facebook page, or email: email@example.com.

Saturday League Games
Sandy Cricket Club’s 1st XI finished top of the Bedfordshire Invitational Saturday League 2nd Division. In a shortened league season, the 1st XI lost just one match. In the final match of the season Zahaan Hussain scored his maiden century for the club.
The 2nd XI is where the club looks to introduce younger players into adult league cricket and reintroduce senior players who are returning to the game after a few years break. The team finished the season with consecutive victories, and it was great to see the younger players make good contributions towards those victories.
Sandy Cricket Club Colts bags £2300 from Tesco’s community grant scheme
Sandy Cricket Club Colts are delighted to announce they have bagged £2300 from Tesco’s Bags of Help community grant scheme.
Bags of Help is run in partnership with environmental charity Groundwork, and sees grants awarded to thousands of local community projects every year. Since launching in 2015, it’s provided more than £71 million to over 23,000 local community projects.
Millions of shoppers have voted in Tesco stores up and down the country and it can now be revealed Sandy Cricket Club Colts has been awarded £2300.
Work will now begin on bringing the project to life.
The grant will help to purchase new kit and training equipment for our ever growing youth squad to enable them to grow in confidence and participate in their first ever hard ball league. The club will hopefully also be able to recruit new members and secure the future of cricket within the town.
Voting ran in stores throughout January and February with customers choosing which local project they would like to get the top award using a token given to them at the checkout.
Tesco customers get the chance to vote for three different groups each time they shop. Every other month, when votes are collected, three groups in each of Tesco’s regions are awarded funding.
Alec Brown, Tesco’s Head of Community, said: “Bags of Help contributes funds to community projects up and down the country and we’ve been overwhelmed by the response from customers voting in their local stores. We’re looking forward to seeing more projects brought to life.”
Groundwork’s National Chief Executive, Graham Duxbury, said: “Bags of Help continues to enable local communities up and down Britain to improve the local spaces and places that matter to them. The diversity of projects that are being funded shows that local communities have a passion to create something great in their area. We are pleased to be able to be a part of the journey and provide support and encouragement to help local communities thrive.”
In addition, to mark Tesco’s 100th year, they have announced two special voting rounds, Tesco Bags of Help Centenary Grants, in summer and winter 2019 with larger grant amounts available over wider geographic regions. Please look online for more information on if they can support your group either through the normal Bags of Help vote or Tesco Bags of Help Centenary Grants.
Funding is available to community groups and charities looking to fund local projects that bring benefits to communities. Anyone can nominate a project and organisations can apply online. To find out more visit www.tesco.com/bagsofhelp.
