Support the campaign to rebuild fire devastated pavilion
The Chairman of Hampton Wick Royal Cricket Club, Sam Kemp today issued the following appeal after the devastating blaze burned down the club’s pavilion three weeks ago.
He wrote: “We have been working really hard since the last update and our insurance claim is progressing.
“However, it’s likely to take at least six weeks to know where we stand. We will update you all as soon as we know more.
“Thanks to the amazing efforts by both our rebuild and fundraising teams, we are in the process of securing temporary facilities so we can get sport back at The Wick.
“We are really grateful for all the offers of help on this front.
“In the coming days we have meetings set up with both The Royal Parks and Richmond Borough Council to establish permissions and access.
“And we must say a huge thanks to all of those involved for their speed in getting back to us.
“All the ongoing fundraising activity will be essential to make sure we can provide the right facilities in the short term to get sport back on at The Wick and for us to enjoy a full season next year.
“For the longer-term pavilion replacement, our intention is to build back better and do it as quickly as possible.
“We are planning to conduct a survey so we can create a database of people who have offered to help.
“For the rebuild we will need input from all members, old young, men, women so we get it right. We are also looking for help from:
- Quantity Surveyors
- Landscape Architects
- Environmental Engineers
- Arboricultural Consultants
- Transport Consultants
- Flood Risk Consultants
