Stans Chairmans Column



Many thanks to all those people who gave up their time to give the facilities a facelift.

The following works were undertaken:

  • Oiling and staining of decking and fencing – John Astin, Suzanne Heap and Warren de Vries
  • Oiling staining and painting of all benches – Maureen Stansfield (warmed up with a stint on the Forth Bridge)
  • Painting of tea room, clubroom and boundary stones – Warrende Vries
  • Painting of metal pipe fencing – Trudi Sharpe, Gary and Austin Curzon and Joe Martin (as evidenced by the blue glove prints)
  • Painting of changing room interior – Sue and Joe Martin
  • Clubroom interior lighting – Craig Marsden
  • Gardens – Peter and Eunice Taylor, Bob Spencer and Anne Cochrane

Thanks to the Tea room staff too for the work in the tea room after the winter.

Apologies if I have missed anyone and if anyone has a spare hour or two there are still painting jobs to be done.


To Joey Stein, James Wearden and Max Ingham who put 50 plus on for the ninth and tenth wickets to snatch an unlikely victory against Burnley. Fair play to Burnley too who put out a genuine 3rd team.

A remarkable performance by the District 13s (see scores) where an opening stand of 180 by Rehan Zore (Burnley CC) and Dec Metcalfe (LHCC) led to a final total of 234 -3. Congratulations to Dec on his maiden 50 and of course to Rehan, who created a new record – 135*
