NatWest CricketForce 2006 - Best Practice from 2005

This page contains examples of best practice and case studies from some of the clubs that participated in NatWest Cricket Force 2005.

We'll be building these up as we move towards the 2006 event weekend in April to help you with your planning, and to give clubs some understanding of what can be achieved through participation in CricketForce.

Established in 1849, Wirksworth Cricket Club is one of the oldest in the country.

The club believe they achieved in a few months something that would ordinarily have taken years of fundraising and volunteer time. At least 955 volunteer hours were contributed over the five-month project period, which could be costed at £25,125.
