Following construction of new water and waste facilities for the restored Pavilion, a volunteer Taskforce from Caribbean Mix CC (CMCC) and London West Indies CC (LWIMCC) will help rebuild raised beds for food growing at Grow Mayow under supervision of Erika Sager and Iris Borgers.
For those of you who have been following the major construction works on the sewer and disruption to the site at the front of Grow Mayow, you will know that its volunteers have a huge task to reconstruct the site and return it to its former glory. Plans are already in hand to rebuild the front area of Grow Mayow. The Mayow cricket taskforce will do their bit to help on Sat 12th April as part of their on-going commitment to help the park and the community.
This exciting support from our home cricketers has come about through a generous reciprocal arrangement in which Tim Lund (www.lund.co.uk) will commit 12 hours computer programming time to construct a new website for Caribbean Mix CC.

CRICKET TASKFORCE - Sat 29th March and Sat 5th April
A Taskforce of volunteer Players from Caribbean Mix CC (CMCC), London West Indies Mix CC (LWIMCC) and Streatham Marlborough CC (SMCC) started work on Saturday 29th March 2014 to maintain and improve the area of the cricket square and immediate surrounding grass land. Today they were clearing up winter debris and spreading fertiliser. Other tasks will include re-seeding the outfield area in readiness for the new season and trimming some low overhanging branches of nearby trees. The season will start on Sat 26th April CMCC vs BOW GREEN 1.30pm Start.
This volunteer taskforce activity around the cricket square is under the supervision of Paul Harper and Luke, from Glendale Services. This morning Luke was training them He is pleased that the cricket clubs are taking an active role in maintaining the space.
Both Clubs play Kent Regional Cricket League (KRCL) - METRO 1 Division, as part of the ‘Regeneration of Cricket’ by Lewisham Council in Mayow Park, under direction from Martin Hyde of Lewisham Greenscene.
The Friends of Mayow Park (FOMP) have been kept informed relating to cricket facilities. The cricketers have a proposal, agreed with Greenscene, for a storage container behind the newly restored Pavilion, housing two heavy rollers which will enable weekly rolling and necessary maintenance of the cricket square.
England Cricket Board (ECB) has made an investment of £50,000 relaying the cricket Square for the development of cricket in Lewisham, with a further investment at Hilly Fields.
