Cricket cash sought

Posted on October 31 2016 at 11:11:07

Both Lickey & Blackwell and Barnt Green parish councils were each asked for donations of £500 by Barnt Green Cricket Club, which straddles both parishes.

Representatives of the club say they need the money to refurbish the nets at the training ground where the junior players practise, as there is currently a £1,000 shortfall in the budget for this.

Lickey & Blackwell councillors agreed to the donation, provided Barnt Green councillors did too – and after a debate, including Coun Edwin Gumbley’s concerns over the training ground not actually being in Barnt Green parish, a majority of Barnt Green councillors agreed to donate the £500.
