Natwest Cricketforce is huge success for Winterbourne CC!

Winterbourne CC were a showcase club for Natwest Cricketforce on Saturday and were supported with visits from sponsors Natwest and Jewson as well as ECB and Wiltshire Cricket staff.

Sadly, Mike Gatting, who was due to attend, was unable to be there due to an emergency family issue. On the day, fantastic progress was made with regards to:

  • Refurbishing the club pavilion
  • Painting the storage container
  • Tidying up the ground
  • Attaching chicken wire to the perimeter fence of the ground to prevent rabbit entry
  • Erecting sightscreens, covers and nets

There were donations of resources from many Cricketforce supporters including Durant and Jewson and many hours of voluntary time were donated by club members, the local community and representatives from sponsors Natwest.

The event was also covered live by BBC Radio Wiltshire on their Game On show and there was also support from ECB Club Support and Services Manager, Dave Leighton as well as from Wiltshire Cricket Directors and staff; Chris Sheppard, Steve Sadler, Brian Elliott, Ali Goddard, Josh Boulton and Alan Crouch.

The photos below give a bit of a flavour of the day and you will also be able to see some of the before and after images of the club pavilion!
