Parkend Cricket club hit vandals for six
Parkend cricket clubWhen vandals destroyed the practice nets at Parkend Cricket club, the players and supporters were devastated. As Michael Andrew, youth development officer for the club said " We run three successful junior sides and two slightly less successful adult teams in a local league. Our junior practice nights attract around fifty children and the nets are a big part of training. We were so disappointed that somebody should do this"
However, thanks to a grant from Gloucestershire County Council Active Together fund the club have been able to replace the damaged nets and buy a bowling machine too. County Councillor for Parkend Richard Leppington (UKIP Blakeney and Bream) - (pictured), who obtained the grant for the club, said "sport is so important for youngsters in terms of fitness and instilling discipline. I am pleased that I was able to help the club to get the funding that they needed."
