Cricket Club Nets
For some years now Bluntisham Cricket Club have had an ambition to build a state of the art cricket net facility to replace the aged nets in the corner of the recreation ground. In order to achieve their ambition, the Cricket Club undertook a series of grant applications, and have been successful in securing full funding from Mick George limited for these nets.
The Parish Council have supported the cricket club throughout this process and have agreed to rent the required strip of land to the cricket club on a long term basis on which these nets are to be constructed. They will be located to the right of the Village Hall as you look at the hall from the cricket square, and will be the same width as the hall. They will be fully fenced in and comply with the latest ECB regulations, providing Bluntisham Cricket Club with the sparkliest nets in the area. The nets will not have lighting and will be the responsibility of the Cricket Club for all insurances, maintenance, security and repairs with the Club paying the Parish a peppercorn rent for the land.
Construction is due to start at the end of November and should be finished before Christmas. The Parish Council have worked closely with the cricket club and their contractors and there are plans in place to ensure that the construction area is secured and that any damage to the area and surrounding area is made good once the work has been completed.
Once completed these nets will be 100% managed and maintained by the Cricket Club and are not the responsibility of the Parish Council. It is the intention of the Cricket Club to lease these facilities to other cricket clubs and coaches, but the main purpose of the nets are to provide a state of the art practice facility for Bluntisham Cricket Club and increase the profile of the club within the village and local area, encourage the continued development of the Junior teams and hopefully nurture a future England captain.
All of us at the Parish Council welcome this development and hope come the new season Bluntisham achieve new honours and look forward to a sunny summer afternoon watching the teams playing at home.
