- Protest Photo Shoot:
Many thanks to everyone who attended the club this afternoon to show their support against the current Council dispute.
The turnout of members, players [young and old], family, friends and supporters proves that the Club’s standing within the community is valued.
The efforts of all are appreciated and we must continue to lobby our local MP, Alex Burghart and the leader of Brentwood Borough Council, Louise MacKinlay.
For all updates follow @Shenfield_CC and our website Shenfield.cc.
Here are some photos.
A representative of the Brentwood Gazette took photos and, hopefully, one will appear with an article in this Wednesday's paper.

- SAVE OUR CLUB:
YOUR HELP IS BADLY NEEDED. The existence of Shenfield Cricket Club is once again under the spotlight as Brentwood Borough Council are making overtures
to assume total control, management and retention of the income generated from our car park as well as threatening to evict us from the
second pitch - we must stop this action or risk losing the Club.
Please follow the links below to see how you can help by signing the online petition and turning up for the Protest Photoshoot. Also read our Defence Dossier.

- Get out your old photos:
Our centenary may seem a long way off, but you know how the years just whizz by, so we thought we would make an early start.
We are researching the first 50 years of SCC history at the Courage Playing Fields and asking everyone for any old photos from the 1930s to the 1980s of the teams,
the ground and the old and new pavilions, as we have very few photos from that era. Maybe you weren’t playing then, but your Dad was?
We would also like any anecdotes which might be suitable for a booklet that will be produced for our centenary year.
Please send any of the above to firstname.lastname@example.org

- Volunteers needed for the end of season working party 30th September:
We are meeting at the Club from 9:00 a.m. on Saturday 30th September to tidy up and store away the cricket equipment etc.
for the winter. Bacon butties and hot drinks will be served.
If there is a good turnout, then we can accomplish many other little jobs in advance of next Spring.
If the weather is threatening we can focus our efforts on the inside of the pavilion.
Hope to see you there.

- Chairmen's Day and Race Night (27th August) round‑up:
What a wonderful day!
We would like to extend our heartfelt thanks to all those Club members, Players, Colts and Colt parents, SCC supporters and guests
for a magnificent fundraising effort.
They may say the weather makes the occasion, it certainly helped but our fabulous and loyal club supporters made the day
[and the evening] a huge success.
All this, underpinned by our strong club spirit and sense of community across every age group brought the club together
in such a brilliant way!!
There were so many contributions from all quarters [and we apologise for not listing everyone];
the Scouts providing the marquee [thank you] and Martin Spicer and his band of helpers quickly setting it up in no time,
Bill Hindley erecting a new flagpole complete with a golden cockerel and weathervane gives our club a wonderful uniqueness,
and special thanks goes to the tea ladies under Jo Ballington's guidance - this was a centrepiece of excellence.
The cricket matches could not have been closer, played under a blazing sun in "Australian-like conditions" with both games
ending in very tense finishes to the growing crowd's delight. Following a brief post-match presentation and thanks to the players and guest players,
our supporters soon filled the pavilion for the much anticipated Race Night. This proved a real winner under the stewardship of Martin Ekers, ably supported by Stuart Borman
and many volunteers on the night - we couldn't have done it without you and the race sponsors, owners, jockeys, staff and energetic participation from everyone!
We have winnings to distribute to the following lucky stakeholders:
We do not have a confirmed total fund raising amount just yet as monies are still to be aggregated from various other sources: the Colts BBQ £80 [Garry and Martin],
raffle money from a kindly donated, autographed bat £292, Club cash gift on the night circa £60 and the Race Night - a staggering £5,500!!
This has been the best fund raising effort to date; many thanks and well done.
Please now take time out to relax before "Sal's Rock and Roll show" on the 9th September followed by the club's Annual Dinner and Dance on the 6th October
