Dear Members

As you will know, work is underway to level and improve Lawn 4. The Committee are keen to continue to enhance the Club’s lawns and facilities for members and the improvement of Lawns 3 and 4 is an important part of that.

We were extremely pleased to receive a grant from the Croquet Association for almost 50% of the cost of the Lawn 4 work. The Club is able to make up the balance of the cost from its funds however the Committee felt that it would be appropriate to allow members to make a small personal contribution to the project, which will cost around £10,000 in total.

To help raise funds, the Committee are inviting members to sponsor a small part of the new Lawn 4. The lawn has been divided into 180 squares (12 x 15) and members are able to sponsor a square for £10. With the additional benefit of Gift Aid, this could allow the Club to raise over £2,000, which would be a significant contribution towards the project.

Sponsors’ names will be added to a large illustration of the lawn, which will be framed and displayed in the Clubhouse for posterity. The illustration below will be updated periodically to reflect donations received.

Please speak to a member of the Committee if you would like to participate but you are unsure how.
