Please share to your networks pleaseA polite request regarding lockdown usage of Chipping Sodbury Cricket Club grounds on the Ridings. Hi all – We’re very lucky in Chipping Sodbury to have the Ridings such a great space to enjoy, especially during lockdown. Of late, lots of members and neighbours in the community have been using the Ridings and in particular the cricket grounds for safe and enjoyable exercise – good on you!However, the area allocated to the cricket club is of course designed, maintained (at great cost) and used during the summer as cricket pitches of the highest quality – and we must protect that. As such can we please ask that users respect the environment at all times and adhere to these understandable and sensible instructions:• Under no circumstances venture onto the ‘square’. This is the fenced off area at the centre of both fields which needs careful and expert maintenance all year round.• Dogs are always welcome, but please avoid allowing dogs to tear around the field or chasing balls which can cause damage to the turf and playing areas. We’d prefer all dogs to be on a lead at all times.• It should go without saying but please ensure that ALL DOG MESS IS PICKED UP and disposed of appropriately. Bins are provided on the whole of the Ridings. We have discovered a few piles of dog mess on the outfield this weekend which is totally unacceptable.• We accept young people need to run around, and our ground is a perfect space for that. However, please be sensible. Any games or activity that damages the grass should be avoided. When the ground is wet and frosty, it tears up easily and requires unplanned maintenance. Please remember this when enjoying your activity.• No bikes to be ridden on the grass. Again, when it’s wet the grass is at risk of damage which can cause long term problems.Overall, please just use common sense with the grounds. We love that it is used by the community in the winter, however with the club currently closed, we are unable to oversee usage. We rely on your good sense to help us make sure that come the Summer, when we’ll all be desperate to socialise again, that the place looks as resplendent as it does every other summer.Hopefully that’s not too much of a grumpy request of you all especially as the club is reliant on volunteers to run and manage our organisation. We’re really proud to be a central part of the Chipping Sodbury and Ridings community and we want to make sure that we offer the best environment for our game of cricket and socialising that we possibly can. Many thanks and we hope that everyone stays safe and well! See you all soon. See MoreSee Less

The club is saddened to hear of the passing of Pete Hodkinson on the 3rd January after a long illness. Pete was a solid opening batsman for the first team over many seasons particularly in the 1970/80’s representing the club on both Saturday and Sunday cricket. In the twilight of his playing career he was a stalwart of the second team with the same level of commitment.He was very respected by everyone and always good company.In later life he would frequently be seen on the boundary edge watching the fortunes of the current Chipping Sodbury generations with a keen interest.The club sends its sincere condolences to wife Carol and daughter Sarah, our thoughts are with them at this sad and difficult times RIP Pete.
