Successful NatWest CricketForce at Bury CC
The Radcliffe Road club had around 90 volunteers turn up for the weekend of NatWest CricketForce to help prepare for the start of the new season.
NatWest CricketForce is an excellent grassroots cricket initiative, where clubs register to take part in an annual 3-day 'weekend' where volunteers and helpers come together to prepare and rejuvenate their local clubs for the forthcoming season. This year the initiative ran over the days of 05, 06 and 07 April.
Bury CC saw helpers, players, club members and supporters carry out a veriety of tasks on Sunday 07 April. The club also received a generous donation of £500 from their local NatWest branch.
The club's Junior Co-ordinator Paul Belston said: "We were delighted that around 90 people helped us throughout the whole day. The £500 we received from NatWest helped pay for fences and benches. During the day, we put in 15 new benches around the boundary edge, built a new fence adjacent to our new pavilion and we also painted the boundary wall."
The club's new £100,000 pavilion is currently on-going and is on schedule. More details can be found at www.burycc.co.uk.
