Patrington Cricket Club, based at our picturesque Southside ground since 1850, is at the centre of our local community. COVID-19 has not only prevented us from playing cricket, but has severely impacted our ability to raise funds to maintain and improve our ground. We're appealing to members, parents of our junior section, friends / supporters of our club, and local residents, to help us generate vital funds. Our aim is to raise at least £200 - to keep the ground in pristine condition, for general public use, ahead of any cricket being allowed. But, honestly, depending on your generosity, we're hoping for a bit more...to purchase paint for newly erected fencing, redecorate the clubhouse tearoom, repair ground maintenance machinery and replace netting for our training pitches. With your support, our club can flourish and, when cricket returns, we hope to have as many youngsters sign up to our Dynamos section, so our club can be a source of enjoyment for generations to come.
What we'll deliver:
Why it's a great idea:
£200 allows us to maintain public access to our ground. We've had so much positive feedback from residents, saying how grateful they are that they're able to walk (either themselves or their dogs!) on our ground each day. We'd love to continue this throughout the summer. However, the more funds we can raise, the more we'll invest in our ground, our clubhouse and our training facilities... in turn, this will help us cater for more youngsters within our junior section, attract more members and spectators, and convert our ground into a place that people within our community would genuinely love to be at. Our hope is that, once cricket returns and events can be held, we will be a flourishing cricket club ... able to provide much enjoyment for as many local people as possible.
Steps to get it done:
We'd be grateful for any donation, no matter how small, and assure you we will invest every pound raised to deliver what we've set out above, provided we have sufficient funds.
