Hi, I am the secretary of Ashton Ladysmith Cricket Club, Rose Hill Road, Ashton-under-Lyne, Lancashire OL6 8YG. We are affiliate to the Greater Manchester Cricket League. We field 2 men's team.
As a cricket club we pride ourselves as being for the community and ensure our membership fees are the lowest in the area and we use community fundraising to raise the necessary finances to run the club.
Every year it cost us a lot to run the cricket with updating our equipment and facilities. This year we are looking to purchase a new lawn mower to be able to produce wickets to the standard of the cricket we play. Right now we have a lawn mower but in the past couple of years we have had major failures and cost us to get the mower running again. Also our nets have deteriorated over the years in use and we need to replace them to continue the standard of cricket players.
As a club we clearly need a lawn mower to care for our cricket pitch and new nets to improve our game, our aim is to start a fundraising campaign to purchase a new mower and cricket nets, any assistance would be greatly appreciated.
