Wanstead nets nets

Work has begun to install new £75,000 cricket nets at Wanstead Cricket Club’s ground in Overton Drive following a donation from the London Marathon Charitable Trust.

The old nets which had outlived their usefulness have been dismantled and the topsoil removed in preparation for the installation of a new surface and structure, which will take place in the New Year. 

The club has raised the money in the past year and received a number of significant grants, one of which recognised the role the club played in social cohesion. It is now turning its attention to further fundraising for refurbishment of the pavilion and changing rooms.
