Good signs for Whittington

More than 60 volunteers helped complete 35 tasks to ensure Whittington Cricket Club enjoyed a successful NatWest CricketForce.


Whittington Cricket Club are now boasting some new signs - all thanks to their efforts over the NatWest CricketForce weekend

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.”
