Farningham Cricket Club has been at the heart of the local community for nearly 160 years. The club provides facilities for all ages and abilities in the local area. Our clubhouse was rebuilt around 30 years ago when the old pavilion was burnt down. Over the years the general wear and tear has taken its toll. As a result the roof to the pavilion is in dire need of repair and is currently leaking. We have buckets in the pavilion bar collecting water dripping out of the light fittings. It is therefore vital that these works are done before the start of the season to ensure that the clubhouse is fit and safe to welcome back our members for the new season.
As we are sure you are all aware, roof repairs do not come cheaply. As a community run club held up by volunteers and its membership, club funds will not stretch to these repairs. We have had estimates for these repairs, the cheapest being in the region of £7000. We are hoping that we can appeal to the wider community in the hope that we can raise the funds to carry out the necessary work. As a thank you for any kind donations we have a list of rewards which we hope will show our gratitude.
If you able to, please give generously and please help us promote our cause by spreading the word.
