Your story

Safety work for cricket club.

Group introduction

We're a local cricket club who have been running for 104 years, and have come back from the ashes, after our club was the victim of an arson attack in 2012. After this we had no junior section and struggled to field two senior sides. We now have 66 4-8 year olds who try cricket, 3 U9 sides including an all girls team, sides at U11, U13, U15, U18, Thirds, Seconds and First. We are entirely run by volunteers who coach, manage, play, run the club and staff the facilities. We believe in being open for all regardless of age, gender, colour, religion and sexual orientation. We are truly a Community Club.

How would this funding have an impact on your community?

If we gained the funding it would allow us to 'make safe' the area where the old clubhouse was demolished. We have built practice nets on the site but the spoil is both unsightly and unsafe for junior cricketers as there is rubble and waste in the area which we can't afford to dispose of.
