The cricket and bowling club is at the centre of the village life having playing members from 9 to 90. In normal times the cricket section would run 3 junior teams and 2 senior teams whilst 4 open age 3 veterans and 3 ladies teams would make up the crown green bowling section. Schools and several local groups including the Women's Institute and Saddleworth Olympics regularly use our facilities but due to covid that has all been stopped. Fundraising evenings with local artist, an outdoor film event and quiz nights cancelled has meant income plummeting to zero. In the little of the summer left we need to encourage our supporters to raise funds through crowdfunder so that we can carry on strong into the future.
