Oldbury On Severn Village Cricket Club

Welcome to our club!

We are a small, English village cricket club that maintains the traditions and ambience of our national game - yet here we are on the internet! The cricket club forms a significant part of the social scene within the village, supporting the interests of all ages. In particular, we are seeking to ensure a solid foundation for the children of the village - after all, they are the future of the club. In its wonderful setting in South-West England, we think our village and our cricket club are special. The area is fantastic with the River Severn and its famous Severn Bore, Bristol and Gloucester, and the world famous hotel and restaurant at Thornbury Castle nearby. Wales is a stones throw over the Severn Bridge, with Chepstow Castle, the Wye Valley and Tintern Abbey all close at hand.

Of course, being a typical village, we have two excellent pubs that are frequented throughout the year - The Anchor and The Ship. Both are great stopping off places after playing or watching a game of cricket, or walking along the Severn Way down past the Sailing Club to the bank of the River Severn. Both pubs do good food and have a good selection of beers.

Why not join us as an associate member of the club. Its only £7.50! How many of your friends are members of a genuine English village cricket club. We would like to have members from every continent!

We'd also love you to sponsor us - from sponsoring a match ball to inclusion of your company details on this web site.

We organise regular social events. These range from 'bingo' in the local pub to a big barn dances and similar events. We would very much welcome any donations of prizes that could be auctioned at our events - please email us if you are willing and able to provide something interesting - large or small! If we can get good prizes, we may well auction them on our site.

Whatever your interest, we would love to hear from you. Including if you have a complimentary web site that we can swap links to.
