Good signs for Whittington
More than 60 volunteers helped complete 35 tasks to ensure Whittington Cricket Club enjoyed a successful NatWest CricketForce.
The club achieved everything they had planned before the weekend and now boast some new signage, a smart players’ area and a newly painted picket fence.
Hedges were trimmed, sightscreens assembled and grass was attacked with the strimmer amongst other jobs. It was a surprise the club had time to hold a Grand National sweepstake.
“There are too many people to thank individually but it was a good fun and a great team effort,” said a club spokesman.
“However, special thanks to Bob, Yvonne and Bron for keeping us fed and watered and Mrs K for those fantastic cakes. Thanks also to Dan Boden to for singing for us.
“Thanks again for getting the season off to such a great start.”
