Everyone associated with Lowerhouse CC is clearly excited about the prospect of the re-opening of the bar on Saturday next.

We hope that the EBC & The Government will provide us with more exciting news about the return of recreational cricket sooner rather than later as we like you are itching to get back to some form of normality and watch some cricket.

The club’s bar re-opens this weekend as follows, we will announce further information, including, opening times as we move forward and learn from the initial gatherings and interactions.

Our aim is to provide a safe environment for both you, our customers and our staff with full compliance to the latest rules and recommendations provided by the Government.
