Pledges will only be charged if the project hits its funding goal of £1,901 by 31 Mar 2019

We have separately raised funds to lay a non- turf pitch on our cricket square and need to purchase related maintenance equipment in order to sustain the continuing growth of our Colts section . This has gone from strength to strength since we started from scratch in 2012 and provides professional and volunteer led coaching and matches for over 50 boys and girls between the ages of 7 and 15. Our grass square is suffering due to the increased demands upon it and has reached capacity in terms of usage and maintenance. The installation of a non-turf pitch and purchase of ancillary maintenance equipment will greatly increase our ability to coach more colts more often, and by taking the pressure off the grass square ensure that adult and colt cricket matches have a sustainable surface for increased fixture fulfillment.

What we'll deliver:

  • More cricket for more colts more often
  • A more sustainable cricket club within the life of the community

Why it's a great idea:

Overall this project will allow us to maintain facilities necessary for greater participation of 8 - 15 year olds in well structured recreational cricket , which brings parents together in support of the club and their children, enhances social connections and interactions, significantly helping to sustain the presence of a traditional village cricket club within the community , in an age when many cricket clubs and teams are struggling to keep going.

Steps to get it done:

  • Installing the non turf pitch
