WITH Autumn upon us, we've got some warming winter evenings in store at LGCC for the enjoyment of members, their families and friends.
We kick off October with our regular Monthly Quiz Night on the first Sunday, followed by a gin-tasting event on the second weekend, then live music on the following weekend - as well as all of your favourite regular activities in between at the cricket club at the heart of its community.
Here's what's ahead for October, starting with our feature events for the month...

FROM SUN NOV 20 TO SUN DEC 18: WORLD CUP LIVE AT LGCC
Here at The Green, we'll be showing Fifa World Cup 2022 live in the clubhouse throughout November and December.
Screening on terrestrial TV, it's a chance for folk to come together and cheer on their favourite team over a drink in the warmth of the LGCC clubhouse.
As happened for the Euros, LGCC's Management Committee will be considering how best to serve all those attending with additional screens being considered once again.
The 'Events' section of the club's website (also displayed on the homepage), and LGCC's Facebook page, will show exactly when doors will be open to show matches.
Some midweek afternoon opening will take place if mid-afternoon fixtures are of sufficient profile - and we'll be open as usual every evening.
There's likely to be some social events pinned around some England matches; details are still being finalised.
If you have any ideas relating to social events you'd like to see LGCC host, or would be keen to put something on yourself, please feel free to contact Social Events Co-Ordinator Sandra Malloy on 07907 488416.
We look forward to welcoming you soon at The Green!
