Have your say

A CRICKET club which provided summer activity sessions for children is celebrating after winning funding to set up a junior team.

More than 100 young people from Old and New Whittington, in Derbyshire, took part in a variety of activities at Brearley Park, Chesterfield.

Cricket, volleyball , rounders, skateboarding, karting, a climbing wall and BMX riding were on offer.

Next year, the youngsters will be able to play regular cricket after Whittington Wanderers Cricket Club was awarded funding by Barclays Bank, to allow volunteers to gain coaching qualifications.
