Club helpers swap cricket bats for barrows at West Wittering

NEARLY 50 members and volunteers gave West Wittering Cricket Club a helping hand renovating their ground and facilities as part of NatWest Cricket Force.

The dreary weather didn’t dampen the workforce’s spirits as tasks including putting up a new picket fence and sightscreen and painting the pavilion were completed.

A little help from enthusiastic Sussex CCC professionals James Anyon and Luke Wells, along with five members of the Sussex board, made the event even more special.

Thanks went to sponsors Sayas News, Tudor Catering, Knight Fencing, Wicks Farm Holiday Park, Castle Printers, Mitch Hackshaw Carpentry and Build Center and local people who donated time and materials.

With new facilities and a rejuvenated pavilion, WWCC look forward to the first outdoor net of the season on Thursday, April 5 (6pm), with the juniors starting on Wednesday, April 11 (6pm).
