BTCC Weekly Update – Last Week of the Season – Junior Awards, U13 Girls Rule, Putting the Club to Bed (help needed), Annual Club Awards Dinner and Last Call for Lost Property.

Hi all,

So this will be our last weekly update for this season ……….. there will be a few specials to follow with important updates/to keep you up to date with news and our plans for 2024……..

Thank you to everyone for your support this summer. It won’t be long until it is summer again!

Please see below – help needed please this Saturday for a couple of hours to put the club to bed

Here’s what has happened this week!

Junior Awards Night

Congratulations to all our junior award winners for 2023 – last Friday we heard so many fantastic stories about the season. Thank you also to all the Junior Managers who have done a brilliant job organising training and matches and giving all the children an opportunity to shine.

A special "round of applause" for Ash Causey who has overseen all our junior activities this year as well as ensuring all coaching sessions were covered with club volunteer coaches – great job!

Thank you to Mark Lockett for taking photos which you can find on his website – BTCC Junior Awards 2023

Under 13 Girls Win Their Division

Congratulations to the Under 13 Girls who won their division and came runners up in the Devon Hardball league last weekend – a massive achievement!

Well done to all the team and Ash Roots for the artistic photo!

Putting the Square to Bed

This week we "put the square to bed" – a short way of saying, it has been completely refurbished, flattened and re-seeded in 2 days of non-stop work and then fenced – the grass will start to grow over the coming weeks and then throughout the winter we will be fertilising to ensure it is well prepared for next season – work on the square never stops!

Help Needed on Saturday

We are planning to complete a number of tasks to put the rest of the club to bed this Saturday

– sight screens dismantled
– nets taken down
– covers/hoses off covers
– safety netting curtains down
– benches away

If we get enough people there we could complete it on Saturday morning in a couple of hours – reward will come in the form of bacon sandwiches and/or homemade cakes!

If you can spare some time please could you let Tony know if you are available to help

Tony England – 07702775549


The winter programme will then begin, including painting the front of the pavilion, refurbishing some of the benches and upgrading 2 of the nets. The Ground Team meets every Wednesday morning throughout the winter months, so if you do have a couple of hours to spend we are always on the look out for volunteers! Reward (again!!) comes in the form of cakes at 11am!!

and finally ……………….
