This project was funded on 21 May 2020!

The cricket club provides a hub for social interaction (when allowed) within the village and the club wants to be able to continue this offer once the Covid-19 crisis is over. In order to continue providing a playable cricket pitch and a space for the community to play organised sport, minimum ground maintenance, including mowing and rolling are essential to keep on top of things throughout the Covid-19 crisis (following ECB recommendations). Bengeo Cricket Club, kindly requests your support to help use pay for fuel for our grounds equipment and other maintenance costs to the the field during the Covid-19 crisis. Removing this financial burden will really help us get back to playing cricket as soon as is safe to do so and inline with recommended ECB and Government guidance.

What we'll deliver:

  • The outfield grass at the field will be cut to required lengths
  • The wicket rolled and grass cut to required levels
  • Ground maintenance work undertaken

Why it's a great idea:

The project will help secure the financial stability of the cricket club during uncertain times. It will cover the cost of minimum ground maintenance which in tern will allow the club to get back to being able to offer a cricket venue for its Saturday & Sunday teams and visiting teams alike as soon as allowed by the ECB guidance. The project will also keep the field in a good condition allowing the local community to enjoy this for other sports.

Steps to get it done:

  • Undertaking regular wicket maintenance weekly
  • Undertaking regular outfield maintenance weekly
