Saturday’s AGM was the usual fine and sober occasion as about 20 of us gathered in the Brick, splendidly fed and watered by Becky.
Congratulations to Fraser Wright for winning Player of the Year as our first bowler to take a six-for among his 19 wickets. He also averaged above 40 with the bat and is now the proud owner of an engraved tankard. Thanks to all for your support and help throughout the summer, especially to Mike Ottley for organising the midweek sides.
Season averages are now available on the page for the 2013 season reports.

Seven Brick cricketers – Mike Behl, Dominic Ewer, Will Hawkins, Chris Locke, Alan Petrides, Alvin Spencer and Dave Winpenny – toured Barbados last week playing under the banner of the Palm Beach All Stars (Dave Winpenny’s side from the Nineties). This is how we got on…
The season report for the Bricklayer’s Arms cricket team is now available through our Match Report page, with full averages to follow shortly.
The team’s AGM will take place on Saturday November 30th at 8pm, at the Bricklayer’s Arms.
Our world-famous regional beer festival returns on 25th-29th September 2013. Our festivals put the spotlight on a particular county, with casks stacked high in our garden and beers served in the bar on our pumps. This time we’ll be comparing tasting notes about the beers from Wiltshire. As always hope to feature upwards of 50 real ales.
The beer list is available here and will be update as the event draws near.
In line with CAMRA’s Community Pubs Charity Month, The Bricklayer’s Arms is running its own campaign throughout July.
Landlady Becky is currently half way through a tee-total year. Yes, that’s right, a publican having a completely dry 2013. It would be great if you would sponsor her in aid of her charity, Headway South-West London. We are aiming to raise £500 during July.
Please visit www.charitygiving.co.uk/beckynewman to donate.
I am taking part in the Great Wall of China Marathon on May 18th 2013.
The wall is not flat, but lies on top of the curves of hilly landscape. There are very steep ascents, with thousands of steps to negotiate, varying from shallow to knee high, and gradients can reach 1:10. I will be running in blistering heat and high humidity. There’s also some altitude thrown in for a bit of a laugh. It is a race renowned for bringing athletes to their knees.
I am hoping to raise £5000 for Headway South-West London, a local charity of which I am a trustee. We support victims of brain injury, their families and carers. We receive no government funding and are totally reliant on private donations. I was absolutely overwhelmed by your kind generosity and support when I took part in the North Pole Marathon last year when you helped me raise £10,000.
I would be equally delighted if you would do the same again this year. Please visit www.charitygiving.co.uk/beckynewman to make a donation or pop some coins into the collection boxes on the bar.
Thank you very much indeed
