Gedling Cricket Club
Gedling Cricket Club is one of three showcase clubs for an initiative set up by Natwest Cricketforce and the ECB (England Cricket Board) which aims to rejuvenate the nation's cricketing facilities.
The 26th - 28th March has been the Cricketforce weekend where clubs have asked the community to help repair and refresh facilities at local cricket grounds.
The event which involved many local residents, businesses and tradesman was hugely successful and enjoyed by all. The generousity of local people has meant that Gedling Cricket Club are having their roof repaired and fantastic new changing room facilities for the players.
On Saturday 27th March there were over 200 hundred people helping at the cricket ground. Vernon went along on Saturday morning for a few hours to help out with some of the painting.
