Cricket Club Improvements

  • The Cricket Club was established in the 1920s, has 300 members and a clubhouse which is used regularly by the community for a range of activities and events.
  • The club is growing, has a development plan and has ambitions to introduce girls/ladies cricket.
  • One of the club’s main priorities was to improve its playing surface. SUEZ Communities Trust funding was awarded to purchase a new 3ft roller, outfield mower and wicket mower. Grounds maintenance is carried out almost entirely by volunteers so the equipment has been of great assistance.
  • Funding also paid for the installation of decking across the front of the pavilion to give a better area for spectators and players to sit and enjoy the game.
