What is the social/environmental problem/issue that this project will address?
Our project is one element of a development plan that will help us to improve and provide facilities to enable people of all ages to enjoy the game of cricket and take part in an activity that will:
• improve fitness and health
• develop sporting skills
• develop social skills
• involve the local community
Can you give us some statistics on this problem?
In recent years the club has had problems with vandalism, including damage to the scoreboard, and our funds have had to be used for increased security to protect the premises rather than improve the facilities. This has had an impact on the number of youngsters attending coaching sessions and we have produced a development plan to improve the facilities and encourage more youngsters to get involved in the game.
How will you deliver this?
We run coaching/practice sessions on 3 nights per week and have matches on 6 days per week throughout the summer plus social events for members and the community.
