Cash boost for Eckington Cricket Club

Eckington Cricket Club has been handed a £40, 000 cash boost from the Landfill Communities Fund to finance the fit-out costs of their new clubhouse.

Work started in September to demolish the former clubhouse and the new one is being built by Eckington Cricket Club members and tradesmen within the club.

It is expected to be completed in time for the new cricket season next year.

The construction is also being part-financed by Sport England as part of the organisation’s Inspired Facilities Fund.
