This weekend it was NatWest CricketForce, a national scheme set up to bring the club and local community together to get the grounds and facilities ready for the new season. I joined a team of willing volunteers at Burbage and Easton and Royal Cricket Club to help out and capture some of the hard work that went on. It never ceases to amaze or impress me that the same people come together every year to decorate, clean, update, and improve the grounds for the benefit of the whole club. By signing up to the scheme clubs nationwide benefit from a Jewson Privilege Account that entitles each club to credit at Jewson, so I joined the early morning run to pick up some supplies. It was then off to Choppers for Cafe for a filling brekkie to keep us going! As soon as we arrived at the club, the list of jobs to do came out, the music was turned on, and everyone cracked right on! I helped out painting some tractor parts and with a big sort out in the shed whilst capturing some of the work that went on. Massive thanks to Matt and Fiona Kellow of Thrings Solicitors, the club's main sponsor, who came down and got stuck in too! This year a lot of work has gone on to attract new sponsors for the team too, and it was great to see the new advertising boards going up around the ground, including Macer Cricket and Fitness Space in Marlborough.
I am really proud to Sponsor BERCC, and I am massively excited about the season ahead!!!!
