  • Visitors‘ Car Parking at Hillhead CC (18th April 2024)

    Please see the following information provided by Hillhead CC

    This is to advise all our playing members and guests from visiting clubs and match officials that parking charges for using the designated parking bays in Hughenden Road / Lane have been increased from 1st April as in all other areas within Glasgow.

    Sorry BUT there is NO parking available within our grounds.

    These charges apply from 08.00 till 18.00 Monday-Saturday (inclusive). There are therefore NO restrictions for parking for midweek cricket activities after 18.00, ONLY SATURDAY COMPETITIVE FIXTURES.

    Visitors scratch card car parking vouchers ( £5 for 6 hours, 12.00 till 18.00) are available from our ground floor reception at Café source Too. This represents good value, given, if they were not available, the charge is £1/every 15 minutes.

    It is suggested that the players in visiting clubs might consider car sharing when they travel to play any of the Saturday Hillhead X1’s.

    Thank you for your co-operation.

    Bernie Mitchell
    Secretary
    Hillhead Cricket Club
