Work begins on New Nets following successful funding application

Digital StillCameraDigital StillCameraThe site preparation work for our new 3 lane all-weather practice nets began this week. Older members may recognise the old paddling pool which has after many years been revealed by the excavations.
Shropshire Cricket Board (SCB) through their Cricket Facility Strategy, identified St Georges CC as a priority in Telford for the development and installation of non turf practice facilities to support our growing junior programmes for boys, girls and people with disabilities. This resulted in the England and Wales Cricket Board through consultation with SCB, approving the project on SCB‘s recommendation. 75% of the cost of the project, some £37,500, was granted to the club as a result. The balance is being met from club reserves, fundraising and a loan. A sizeable contribution was made by the late Jim Heath in his will and also from donations made after his funeral. St Georges Parish Council have also offered financial support. The total cost of the project is over £50,000. We are also grateful for support and cooperation given by the St.Georges Recreation Ground Management Committee and the Sports & Social Club….Follow progress in our photo gallery
