Thursday April 11 (and every Thursday), 6.30pm-8pm

A weekly yoga session for members, with the clubhouse designated for exclusive use of the group. A drink and conversation often follow the weekly workout.

Friday April 12, from 6pm
JUNIOR CRICKET: Informal Net Session
Not the official start of 'Friday Nights at The Green' (junior coaching + parents drinking), but a chance for juniors of any age to come up and use one of the club's two new artificial turf nets. Please note specific timings by age group: 6pm-7pm U10s-U12s, 7pm-8pm U13s-U17s. Training for juniors at ages younger than U10 will start on Friday April 26.

Friday April 12, from 8pm
There's a gathering of volunteer bar staff a week Friday. It's a little way of saying thanks for the time given up to serve other LGCC members. Bar Chairman Graham Evans will be there next week, so if you've thought about helping out behind the bar just once per month in exchange for 20% off your drinks all year round, then do come along and say hello.

Sunday April 14, from 10am

Volunteers are welcomed from 10am at The Green to help tidy up around and about the LGCC clubhouse, with tea & coffee served afterwards - just as the bar opens, too.

Sunday April 21, from 2pm
Bring the kids along on Easter Sunday for a special family-themed Easter Egg Hunt from 2pm onwards - along with some other fun for children. Members are welcome to bring guests and their families along, to show them how welcoming a club we have here at The Green.

w/c Tuesday April 22, 5.30pm starts
Junior Cricket Matches Begin
Herts Junior League games have been scheduled for this week, despite it being during the Easter holidays. Please mark your availability against relevant age group fixtures for your child(ren) once logged in on the club's website. If you need a password reset or reminder, drop a text (with the email you want to be registered (in case it's changed)) to Richard W on 07881 658415.

Friday April 26, from 6.30pm
JUNIOR CRICKET: Coaching 'Friday Nights' Begin, from 6.30pm
The official start of Friday Nights, when parents look out lovingly from the clubhouse and watch as their children take part in our group coaching sessions - split by age & ability. We'll have hot food available every week, subject to their being enough volunteers to take a turn in providing it. The bar will be open and everyone is welcome along to socialise.

Friday April 26, from 8.00pm
'FINAL FRIDAYS' - CLUB SOCIAL EVENT:  Wedding Of The King & His Queen
Continuing our theme of a main club social event on the last Friday of each calendar month, it's time to fish out the posh frocks and dinner jackets as LGCC's former overseas cricketer Alex King pays the UK a post-marriage visit to re-confirm his vows to the delightful Georgia Foote in a 'wedding ceremony'.
This evening will include a prosecco bar, a hot food wedding buffet and the usual Friday night Meat Raffle as well as a disco.

This evening also provides a last chance for LGCC playing members to pay their annual subscriptions due ahead of the 2019 cricket season commencing.

Sunday May 5, from 8pm (and every first Sunday of each month)
A very popular monthly staple on the Events calendar, Quiz Night is a monthly chance to pit your wits against fellow members for cash prizes as well as a spot of fundraising from time to time. They're always held on the first Sunday in each calendar month, so please feel free to come along as a team or individuals to join up with others.
