NatWest CricketForce 2006 - Thinking outside the boundary- Bunwell CC

Bunwell Magnet

Magnet Kitchens in Norwich have donated a brand new kitchen to Bunwell CC to help them in their NatWest CricketForce 2006 event.

Chris Brook, the CricketForce organiser for the small rural Norfolk club, emailed the Norwich branch of Magnet to see if they could offer the club anything - and within 24 hours Mark the manager had emailed back, asking Chris to visit the store and see him.

When he arrived Chris was greeted with a selection of kitchen cabinets which Mark told him he could have. Chris then arranged collection of the kitchen by the club's youth manager, Gary Ludkin.

Bunwell CC would like to thank Mark and Magnet for their generosity as it will give the cricket club, football club and youth club who they share their clubhouse with a real boost.

It will also give added drive to the CricketForce weekend, which will see the club building a new sightscreen, continue to prepare the square and outfield, paint parts of the club house and restore the storage area which was damaged by fire.

The club has also had offers of help from local builders Abel Developments, T & A plant hire, The Pelican public house in Tacolneston, a carpenter, three builders in the village plus the post office manager.

To complete the weekend Chris would like to find an electrician who could rewire the clubhouse then he feels he would have won the equivalent of the Ashes for the club!

To contact Chris email him at or phone 07789 415466.
