The Trust was set up on the 19th December 1907 by Russell Donnithorne Walker, John Bradshaw, Eugene Alfred White and Raymond Turner Barker, the first Trustees. The land was donated in perpetuity to be used forever by the inhabitants of Southgate and any other person or persons who may be members of clubs approved by the Trustees for playing the games of cricket, football, hockey and any other games approved by the Trustees.
The WCGT has a duty of care to safeguard all children involved in the Walker Cricket Ground from harm. All children have a right to protection, and the needs of disabled children and others who may be particularly vulnerable must be taken into account. The WCGT will ensure the safety and protection of all children at the Walker Cricket Ground through adherence to the Child Protection guidelines adopted by the WCGT. A child is defined as a person under the age of 18 (The Children Act 1989).
Please be aware that the Walker Ground has a ‘No Dogs’ policy and so please do not bring your dog onto the ground.
