Ground Temporarily Shut To Dog Walkers

February 4, 2021 News

Due to serious water-logging, we have had to shut the ground to members who wish to walk their dogs for the time being. This applies to all and until further notice. We need the ground to dry up.

Unfortunately we have had issues over the winter with damage caused to the fields by dogs. When the weather improves, we will have a stricter dog walking policy in place with new signs to advise of the new rules.

From this point forward, dog walkers must:

  • Be fully paid-up current members of Wellington Cricket Club, either as a playing member or social member
  • Keep their dogs on leads at all times whilst walking at the club
  • Pick up any dog waste and dispose of it off site – not in the club bins which are emptied infrequently

Thank you for your co-operation on the above. We want to keep our fields available to members to walk their dogs responsibly. However, in recent times damage and mess has been caused by those not following the rules and it not right that our volunteer ground staff should have to be dealing with this.
