Message from our Chairman

Dear members,
One year on and the immediate future makes it not possible to convey any details
of our 2021 / 2022 winter programme.
Be assured, that your committee and in particular our events secretary,
will be working to produce another enjoyable and memorable programme as lockdown eases.
We hope, and dare we say expect, to be gathering together in the autumn,
and we ask that after reading this,
you will please
spread our plans to any friends, who would like to join
our warm and friendly Society
Howard Pollard. LCS Chairman


The members and committee of the Leicestershire Cricket Society are saddened to learn of the passing of “BIG PHIL” Wright.
Through the years, we have greatly appreciated what Phil did for the society.
Both in the warmth of his welcome and in the meticulous preparation of the Charles Palmer suite, for our meetings.
We have been extremely grateful for all his willingness and efficient contributions to the LCS.
We shall all miss him greatly.



In memory of "BIG PHIL"
a new bell as been commissioned
The LCS has donated £50
towards the cost
on behalf of our members.


IMPORTANT NOTICE FOR ALL LCS MEMBERS


Dear Members,
It is with great regret that the Committee has unanimously agreed to cancel the whole of the 2020/21 programme
which means that the meeting with Vic Marks scheduled for Thursday 11th March will not go ahead.
As stated in previous correspondence
We are extremely grateful to those members who have agreed to donate their subscriptions to the Society,
but if anybody does require a refund, please contact Mike Siddall, and he will arrange for this to be done.
All that remains is for the Committee to wish you all a very enjoyable festive season and a happy and healthy New Year.
Recent positive news on the vaccine front suggests cautious optimism that cricket may return with spectators in the late spring
and we look forward to seeing members down at Grace Road once again.
Signed,
Your LCS committee
If you have any questions / comments, please contact us.

Background

The Society was formed in the summer of 2002 and held its first meeting in November of that year.
The inaugural speaker was appropriately enough Jack Birkenshaw who had achieved so much for Leicestershire both on and off the field.
The audience numbered around 70 and in all our subsequent meetings, usually held at the County Ground, Grace Road, we have maintained a healthy attendance of 60+.
Other speakers in our first season included John Holder, Derek Randall and Alan Hill.

There was a Grand Charity Evening on 11th October 2006 - click here for a brief report

Membership Details

Membership now numbers 164 with annual subscriptions being £20.
