Hawarden Park Cricket Club Logo


The club is once again looking to undertake a major challenge next June, (exact date to be arranged), to raise funds for the new pavilion. We are looking to paddle in canoes from Chester to Birmingham and hopefully ending up at Edgbaston. The route is via the canal network and should be about 75 miles in length. We are going to use two person canoes and Steve Tibbett has kindly offered to organise the challenge, so watch this space for further details. If you fancy a 3 day physical challenge, do sign up to this. Each person will be expected to raise a minimum of £400 and we are looking for 20+ people to paddle. This will be the first ever Park Armada or should that be Parkada!! (Probable days will be Monday-Wednesday).Accommodation will be two nights camping or B&B, details will follow.

At the same time as the Paddlethon people can also walk the route and raise sponsorship that way. Paddling and walking are both about the same speed, so you can walk 75 miles or paddle 75 miles in 3 days.

We will also need support drivers, so if you can’t paddle/walk there are still ways of getting involved.

So come on sign up, there will be plenty of laughs along the way.

You can sponsor the paddlers and walkers at http://www.justgiving.com/hawardenparkcc or click the Just Giving banner.

Cheques have been flying in and orders are encouraging we have passed the £1000 milestone , so if you want to be a part of history you can buy a brick and have your name built into the pavilion for future generations to see, for either £25 which gives you 2 lines of 16 characters (inc spaces) per line or £60 which gives you 4 lines of 16 characters per line on a bigger brick. It has been good to see a few ex players respond and purchase bricks so come on the rest of you, now is the time to help out. CONTACT JON MERRICK at merrick223@btinternet.com
