Bere Regis is a thriving, rapidy growing club in Dorset, with a first eleven in Dorset League Division One, a second eleven in Dorset League Division 6 and three youth teams at Under 11, Under 13 and Under 15. There are also plans to join the newly formed Dorset TT25 league this season, offering even more people the opportunity to play the nation's premier summer sport. Furthermore, the club has also just signed up to become a centre for the exciting new 'Cricket All Stars' project, about to be launched by the ECB to attract more 5 to 8 year olds into cricket.
Our ground is already maintained to a high standard, but this doesn't stop us from looking at ways to improve further, particularly as the increased number of teams will add even greater demands upon the square. The covers will enable us to protect the square from the elements and to play more games at all levels.
We have been granted some funding towards the £4,200 required through the ECB 'Get the game on' small grants scheme, but there remains a £1,800 shortfall, hence our appeal here.
