Springhill Cricket Club

 

Development

 

springhill pavillionSpringhill CC is pleased to announce that the club has been successful in their application for planning permission from South Staffordshire Council.

 

The club has received the full backing from all parties for a new, purpose built pavilion to replace the temporary facilities that are currently in use. The clubs previous pavilion was destroyed in an arson attack in 2005.

 

Designed in a “T” shape, the new structure will include both home and away dressing rooms either side of a club room. The development also includes a kitchen, a number of toilets within the additional space behind the main structure. A sheltered veranda is also included at the front of the building.

 

It has taken a number of years to get to this stage, following on from other developments which include a number of ground improvement projects along with establishing a league cricket side and by adding a second team for the 2012 season. Development Secretary Daniel Kinsey highlights that “the granting of planning permission is the latest milestone in our quest to raise a new cricket pavilion. From here on, we know completion of the project can be accomplished, and we eagerly look forward to that”.

 

However, the development of a permanent pavilion is seen as the most vital to the club’s long term growth and stability. Vice-Chairman Kevin Jones highlights “The pavilion is the heart of any club. It allows players families and spectators to come and enjoy a good cricket match whilst being safe in the knowledge that there is sufficient shelter and facilities to allow them to enjoy the day fully. On completion of this project, the ground will be able to turn from a facility that is open two days a week for matches to a venue that is open throughout the week regardless of weather.”

 

The clubs development team can now begin the process of acquiring the funding required. “The project will cost a considerable sum, and we are confident we can raise much of this from sporting and community grants, even in this tough economic climate. However, we hope the club can make a significant contribution by raising money through its members and their families, as well as through our local community” discusses Daniel Kinsey.

 

In order to achieve this, Springhill CC has announced the opening of the “Buy a Brick” scheme, with a minimum donation of £10. “The ‘Buy a Brick’ campaign has been launched by the club to accomplish this goal, and all donors will be commemorated on a plaque in the finished building. This is a very exciting time for us, and we hope to bring this longstanding challenge to a swift conclusion.”

 

Buy a Brick

 

Having achieved the major hurdle of securing planning permission, the club has now begun fundraising to achieve the completion of the project.

 

We have therefore launched a ‘buy a brick’ campaign, with minimum donations set at £10.00.

 

All donors through this scheme will have their names on a plaque in the finished building.

 

Anybody who wishes to make a donation should contact the club on the details provided.
