150 years ago this year…

GCC in 1868

An early photographer took a picture of a village cricket match in Grittleton…  I wonder what he would have thought of a copy of that photo being put through every door in Grittleton and surrounding area, never mind being “tweeted”…

Happy new year – GCC have been busy planning and advertising the events for it’s sesquicentennial celebrations (yes, there is such a word!).  We have also been researching and writing up the clubs history, which we will post here as it gets tidied up.

As well as having fun celebrating we are looking to commemorate the event by  placing a “proper” clock on the Pavilion, do some proper signage and hopefully rebuild some of the tired interiors and exteriors of the pavilion.  To do this we need to raise some funds (around £5,000) so we have included some fundraising amongst our events.

We are also pleased to announce that we will be hosting a fixture from another club who are celebrating 150 years this year: Stanton-by-Dale, on Sunday 22nd July.

More details on the events can be found here, they are summarised below:

With the support of the club and the village we can make this a year to remember and one that is looked back on in 50 years at the GCC 200th.

Bring it on!
