Electric Mower For Poulton Cricket Club

Poulton Cricket Club By Poulton Cricket Club

Purchasing a robot mower will cut emissions and noise pollution. It will free up capital and time to invest in the provision of youth sport while also being better neighbours in our village.

Funding is now over. Bear with us while we tot up all your pledges!

Changes to one of the grants we qualified for meant we have a shortfall in our funding to purchase a new mower. We are a clubmark cricket club offering cricket to girls & boys from u5s through to u15s and are a Junior club with an attached senior section. Our goal is to offer sport on excellent facilities at an affordable rate while also caring for the fantastic village facility we are lucky enough to be able to use for the benefit of local parishioners. We are seeking funds to purchase an appropriate robot mower which offers a more environmental (both noise & emissions) method of caring for the village playing field for locals outside cricket to enjoy.

What we'll deliver:

  • Purchase a robot mower to maintain the playing field year round

Why it's a great idea:

The robot mower will bring two benefits, firstly it will reduce noise pollution for our neighbours. The mowers are far quieter and there will not be the need for a noisy diesel tractor towing rattling gang mowers around an outfield three times a week when volunteer time and the weather converge. Instead we will be able to remotely manage the mowing using near silent battery power able to mow when volunteers are at work. It will reduce fuel costs for the club and lower both emissions and our annual machinery maintenance costs. Volunteers will also be freed up to handle other work around the premises.

Steps to get it done:

  • Raising Fund for Deposit
  • Raising Balance of Funds for Purchase
  • Installation of Unit
