Do you have a box hidden dep in the attic or under the bed that holds the records of a CSSC club or association? Medals or trophies for a CSSC sporting event? Or a photo with a special story behind it? If so, it could be part of CSSC’s celebrations to commemorate its centenary in 2021.
We would like to know of any old photographs, diaries, stories, artefacts, memorabilia or any item that has a history with CSSC.
With your support we can help keep the rich history and precious memorabilia from being lost or discarded. Any donation that you make will be kept safe for future use by CSSC, its affiliated associations, members and historians.
Please contact Hedley Featherstone if you have any questions on firstname.lastname@example.org or 07802 482330.
Below are images from the Queen's Coronation visit to CSSC sports ground in 1953
We are very grateful to Madeline Skelly for sharing these photos of the Queen’s Coronation visit to CSSC’s sports ground at Chiswick on 25 July 1953. Madeline was a player in a cricket match on that day. She told us “I was very excited and very nervous when I had to go into bat (unexpectedly!) but managed to survive and score some runs. I was told later that the Duke of Edinburgh commented on my ability to give the ball a good thump!".
