On Sunday 22nd June at 12 noon during, the Mayor of Cossonay, Mr. Georges Rime will officially open the new Cossonay Cricket Club pavillion at En Marche.
The ceremony will take place during a break in proceedings at the Cossonay Cricket Club's 25th Anniversary cricket match, involving teams of all generations, in a celebration of cricket to mark 25 years of cricket in Cossonay.
The Mayor of Cossonay, M. Georges Rime, cut the blue ribbon and, with an eloquent speech, declared the clubhouse open!
The ceremony was attended by a mixture of guests -- supporters, current CCC stars, veterans of yesteryear and juniors for tomorrow. Conspicuous amongst the invitees was former Lancashire, Warwickshire and England opening batsmen, Bob Barber, who, in a veterans versus juniors match in the afternoon, turned his arm to good effect!
The weather was perfect -- sunny with a light breeze and the flutes of Champagne after the opening ceremony ably 'oiled the wheels' of those padded-up and ready to play.
Following the completion of all the legal aspects of erecting a permanent clubhouse (planning permission, surveyors' activity, public enquiry) and with the encouragement of the local town council, so necessary for the development of cricket in Switzerland, Cricket Switzerland looks upon the events in Cossonay as an important step forward for the sport in this country.
