As the cricket season winds down this month, now is the time to join the Derbyshire Cricket Society and keep in touch with the game over the winter.
The society promotes and supports the interests of Derbyshire County Cricket Club. The programme of cricket speakers runs across six lunchtime meetings, usually the last Thursday in the month, starting in October and running through to March.
This year’s programme (below) starts on Thursday 26th October with a talk by Paul Smith, one of the most entertaining ex-county cricket speakers.
Membership for the year only costs £5. Please contact Marion Bingham, the Membership Secretary (address below) if you are interested.
Winter Programme 2017/18
Meetings are held with lunch, 12 Noon for 12.30, in the Legends Lounge, Elite Performance Centre (formerly the Gateway Centre), The 3aaa County Ground, Nottingham Rd, Derby DE21 6DA.

Having spoken for the society before, I can vouch for a friendly welcome and a convivial atmosphere in which people are made to feel very welcome.
That is also an excellent line-up of speakers, with a strong Derbyshire bias.
If anyone needs more information, please get in touch and I will connect you to them!
