This week, David Baird becomes the first double winner of our club hero award. Along with his wife, Sharon, he was nominated by junior club chairman Russell Haggar, who said: ‘ I know he’s been a hero already but the commitment and effort that both he and Sharon put into making the Hertfordshire Junior League finals day and Monday’s Charley Cricket day a success were outstanding and, frankly, beyond the call of duty. David sorted out all the logistics for both days, arranged all the tasks and made sure there were people to do them, while Sharon ran the teas and coffees including supplying all the tasties. They’re both stars !’ Chairman Chris Johnson felt David, who also provided the Charley day write-up for this website, deserved the double because it was just one of many unseen contributions, especially in shifting the vast amounts of paperwork that go with running a thriving club such as ours.
Every week, the chairman salutes the member or supporter who has gone that extra mile to help make our wonderful club that little bit more wonderful. We’d like to offer him or her a holiday in the sun or the latest smartphone for their selflessness but instead they will have to make do with this small public pat on the back.
