NatWest CricketForce in Wiltshire
NatWest CricketForce is an England and Wales Cricket Board volunteering initiative aimed at rejuvenating the nation’s cricketing facilities.
CricketForce encourages cricket supporters, their friends and families to give something back to their local community cricket club by volunteering to undertake major renovations to clubhouses and grounds, typically over a special weekend before the start of the cricket season.
A record number of clubs took part in NatWest CricketForce 2012 - with 1,940 registering to surpass last year's record of 1,914.
Also in Wiltshire we achieved a record number of registered clubs in our CricketForce history, and in 2013 we will be looking to better this again and make the event even larger.
As mentioned earlier it is a great way to bring the club together and make sure that the club is ready for the new season, how large the project is does not matter, its about bringing the club together at the start of the season and finding new volunteers while carrying out jobs that are needed.
