The Development Fund was launched in 1995 in order to provide the facilities consistent with the stature of Lymington Cricket Club. Since its inception, the Development Fund has raised more than £16,000 and has enabled the Club to improve facilities at the Sports Ground for all sections of the Club. The fund has so far financed the acquisition of new sightscreens, two new artificial practice wickets, a water hog to mop up surface water on the square, and Covers to protect the square, which were essential to satisfy the strict regulations to gain Gold Accreditation, imposed by the Southern League. Last year funds helped to finance a new scoreboard, bowling machine and double garage to store our chattels. In 2008 our aim was to raise enough funds to purchase new netting for our artificial practice nets.
As the result of lots of drive and enthusiasm in recruiting new members by our Chairman we raised over £2000. Membership stands at 113 and we are looking to increase that number in 2009.
Of course, as well as raising vital funds for the development of the Club, the Fund has paid out prize money of £640 per year and we list the 2008 winners. There is no doubt that looking after this fund raiser increases your chances of winning!
