Caroline Flint has congratulated Warmsworth Cricket Club on their latest good fortune. The MP met the Club officers to view plans to refurbish the recently extended club house after a £51,340 grant from landfill operators FCC.
The grant was handed to the Club by Penny Beaumont, WREN Grant Manager for Yorkshire & Humber, which administers landfill grant funding to local groups.
ALL SMILES: l to r Penny Beaumont, WREN Grant Manager for Yorkshire, Mick Wolsey, Chair, Richard Nettleton Secretary, Malcolm Sharp, Vice President, and Caroline Flint viewing the new plans.
Said Caroline: “Mick, Malcolm, Richard and the Club volunteers deserve huge praise for the progress they have made and for securing this valuable grant. The plans are very exciting and I am sure it will lead to the Club growing further.”
Penny Beaumont, Grant Manager for Yorkshire & Humber said: “The funding for the Warmsworth pavilion which has been awarded by WREN, will not only improve facilities for cricket but create a real hub for the local community to come together. The funding is all about helping people to improve their communities in a sustainable way and this facility is a great example. We hope many people in Warmsworth enjoy it for years to come.”
The Don Valley MP had backed the original bid from Sport England which provided £50,000 from its Olympic Legacy fund to allow the club to build a new roof and extension. The new refurbishment work is likely to be completed by the New Year.
