The deadline for our next funding round is Tuesday the 24th of March, see the 'About' tab for more information Our towns, villages and communities are the strength of Kirklees. Local people have asked us to do more to recognise this. We should all have a stake in the places where we live, work or visit. So we’re celebrating our places by encouraging more great ideas. You might have a little idea that can have a big impact by bringing a place together. Or you might need some help growing support for an ambitious project that’s just getting started. We want you to feel able to influence your community’s future. Please get involved and help the movement to grow - pitch your ideas, back any projects you like and let other people know. Growing Great Places is all about bringing people and places together. It’s part of our work to grow a stronger local democracy here in Kirklees, from the ground up. If you have any questions please contact: GrowingGreatPlaces@kirklees.gov.uk

Emley Clarence Cricket club
Emley Clarence Cricket club joined Growing Great Places1 week ago

The cricket club has many junior teams from All Stars, U9, 11, 13, 15 and 17s. We also field 2 senior teams in the Huddersfield Drakes Cricket league. All roles of management are voluntary. Our facilities are used only during season and we do not get opportunity to generate monies in the winter months making the summer a critical period for us to generate cash through activities so we can invest in improvements to our facilities and equipment specifically to aid the Junior membership as we strive to provide sporting opportunity for the local people. We have been looking at various improvements at the club which without your help will be difficult to deliver.

With the news that the ECB has announced that there will be no professional or amateur cricket until at least the 1st July, we are left with bills to pay but no income. The ECB have announced that they will donate £100 to the cause, once we have also reached an initial £100 in donations. Our bills are circa £400 per month and we have decided to set up this crowdfunding page to help towards paying 2 months worth of bills. We want to ensure that there is a place for the whole community to come together to play and enjoy cricket. It will be more important than ever once this is all over!

Heck & Carl United CC COVID-19 Appeal joined Growing Great Places2 weeks ago

With cricket on hold and no indication of when it might resume, we currently have no income but still the expenditure of maintaining the ground. We are therefore fundraising to help pay the bills throughout the summer until either cricket can resume or until social distancing rules are relaxed and we can raise money in other ways
