Association Finalise Dates And Prices For Summer Lunches

Association Finalise Dates And Prices For Summer Lunches

Worcestershire Supporters' Association have finalised the dates and prices for their popular summer lunches which are held each year in the Chestnut Marquee.

The first luncheon will take place on Saturday June 10 and the second one on Sunday, August 6.

The good news is that the prices remain the same as in 2016 at £25.00 for Association members and £27.50 for non members.

Association chairman Andrew Jenkins said: "These are always popular events with Association members and cricket fans.

"They sell out on a regular basis and we are delighted to be able to keep the prices at the 2016 levels for another year."

Application forms for the lunches will soon be available to download via Worcestershire CCC's official website.

Meanwhile prints are still available of the Association commissioned painting by Worcester artist David Birtwhistle of the three pavilions at New Road.

The painting – to mark the Worcestershire CCC's 150 years and the Association's Blue Sapphire Anniversary – shows the Isaac Pavilion at Boughton (1878-1896),, the Foley Pavilion at New Road (1898-2008) and the magnificent view south-west across the Graeme Hick Pavilion (2009-) to the Malvern Hills.

All prints are signed and numbered and cost just £50 and represent a splendid memento of major landmark buildings in the County's history.

They can be purchased c-o chairman Andrew Jenkins at the County Ground, New Road, Worcester, WR2 4QQ with cheques made payable to 'WCCSA.'

The prints will also be available to buy on matchdays during the season at the current Supporters' Association Shop at the back of the Basil D'Oliveira Stand.

Jenkins said: "These proved a popular seller as Christmas presents and would also make an ideal Easter gift.

"Anyone who pops into New Road can see a copy of the print on the wall next to the lift on level one of The View and judge for themselves."
