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.
