Summer may be behind us but cricket wicket and outfield preparations for next season are well underway at St Helen’s, Sutton Cricket Club. We are well aware of the work and costs involved in ensuring pitches are ready, and are delighted to extend our support to the maintenance teams in this area.
Ben Scott, Junior Coordinator emailed extend his thanks and that of club officials. “Thank you again for your support, we are most grateful.”
Supporting health and wellbeing through access to, and participation and inclusion in a range of activities is an important focus of our community engagement. It is therefore wonderful to read of increased numbers at Sutton CC and the impact our support this summer has had on training and development across the club. We look forward to building our partnership in the seasons ahead, and visiting the club to watch the next generation of players at play.
Leah Etheridge (Women’s team captain) commented – “The support from Simple Life Homes has helped our team develop way above expectations. With their financial and social support it has been possible to purchase more equipment which has allowed for much more structured training, as well as our numbers increasing enormously from the start of last season. We are very grateful for their support and look forward to a continued relationship in the coming seasons to allow Women’s cricket to continue to flourish.”
Gary Greener (Sutton Cricket Club Chairman) added – “Sutton’s junior section is entirely volunteer led. Equipment, kit, league fees and ground maintenance costs are all on the rise, and we are very lucky and grateful to be part of Simple Life Homes community sponsorship programme. This programme has allowed for the general playing conditions at Sutton to improve. The support we have received from Simple Life Homes is unwavering and we are very excited for our next crop of youngsters to bear the fruits of the new and improved junior section, with new and increased amounts of equipment, better facilities and more opportunities for those for whom Cricket may not have been an option previously.”
