Darley Dale will be touring Torquay and South Devon from July 21-27. Three fixtures will be played against Ivybridge CC, Torquay CC and Barton CC. The tour is open to all and will cost £192 for the week’s accommodation with players and families driving to Torquay after a league fixture on the Saturday.

Meanwhile, the brass band events will run again at the ground in 2012 on Sunday evenings. The dates are yet to be confirmed but will be supported by a fully licensed bar and barbecue.

Darley Dale CC has had plans drawn up to extend the pavilion. These can be seen on Darley’s website. The extension aims to provide a new home team changing room, an enlarged bar area, an extended function room and improved away changing facilities.

Finally, the picturesque setting of the club has hosted many events including birthday parties, social events, weddings and band nights. The pavilion and ground has a licensed bar plus a license for live music.
