For the third year in succession we will be taking part in the All Stars Cricket programme, which is aimed at 5 to 8 year olds. We’ll have a new Activator this year, in Lizzie Pattison, who will be leading most of the sessions. The first session will commence on Monday 20th May and will continue for 8 consecutive weeks until 8th July and as an addition we will be adding an extra family fun day, aimed at the All Stars and their parents on Sunday 14th July, which is the day of the cricket World Cup final.
Even at this early stage we have 7 All Stars signed up to take part in the programme, which is much healthier than we had at this stage last year. Please let any family and friends know about our All Stars programme, which has been a great success over the last couple of years. The programme costs £40 which includes the 8 coaching sessions, a personalised All Stars tee-shirt, ruck-sack, bat, ball and cap and the website to register is as per the attached link https://allstarscricket.co.uk/rainhamcc
Our annual signing on night will take place down the club on Friday 29th March (BREXIT deadline day) from 7pm, so please come along for for a bit of a social and political debate (the bar will be open) and to pay your annual subscriptions, costs as follows:
Age 26 plus – £90
Age 22 to 25 – £70

New club kit may also be available to collect and pay for on that night.
The following day Saturday 30th March will also be our annual Nat West Cricketforce day to ensure the club is ready for the new season with jobs such as tidying the outdoor nets, clearing the gutters, de-weeding the patio and if Keith allows (skills dependant) a bit of painting. Please try and spare an hour or two, from 10am, so our facilities are ready for the new season
Rainham CC have been successful in applying for funding from the Co-op Community Fund and the way it works is as follows:
Go to the Co-op website coop.co.uk/membership to apply for Co-op membership, which will cost £1.
Then selcet a cause you wish for 1% of everything you spend with the Co-op whether it be at a supermarket, insurance, legal services, elctrical or any other service they provide. The Rainham CC cause is via the following weblink https://membership.coop.co.uk/causes/22244

It’s time to make an effort and dress 90s style at Rainham CC’s next social night.
Scour those charity shops or look through Pete Reynolds wardrobe to find some 90s gear: The decade where ‘Brit Pop’ ‘Boy Bands’ and ‘Girl Power’ were at their height, the ‘Macarena’ was the dance craze, ‘Marathons’ became ‘Snickers’, the England football team had one of their most successful decades ever, England were shocking at Cricket and Maggie Thatcher was finally ousted as Prime Minister.
If this is anything like as enjoyable as the 70s and 80s nights, then it will be a great night.
Bring along family and friends and dress up 90s style where a prize will be on offer to the best dressed.
