Many thanks from the Cricket Club to everyone, both members and non members, who helped out on the “Ground Force” clean up of the Pavilion. It was a great demonstration of community spirit.
The building is looking much better for a Jetwash, repaired guttering and roof and a cleaned and repainted interior.
There are still some details to finish off, and the new carpets that have been ordered need to be fitted.
Once all the work is completed, the pavilion will once again be fit for hosting the cricket team, and also any other village community events who wish to utilise the building
For those of you who have thought recently, “h’mm the Pavilion is looking a bit grubby” or have mentioned things could do with a tidy up, now is your chance to help to make a difference.
The Cricket Club have obtained sponsorship for materials from Natwest, & is undertaking a “Get Stuck In” weekend from Friday 1st April to Sunday 3rd April. Obviously “Many Hands Make Light Work” and so we would welcome help from anyone who would be willing to assist in any way (for any period of time over the weekend) to get as much done as possible.
The intention is to spruce up the pavilion with a clean up and do some general maintenance – painting and repairs etc to make the pavilion and the area surrounding it a more pleasant place to be.
The pavilion is a village facility, able to be used by various different organisations within the village, and a clean up will make it a more welcoming space for anyone who wants to use it
If you can help out, please contact 07787557511 for further details and we look forward to seeing you over the weekend.

Last Wednesday – 25th June – North Luffenham Under 11 team scored a fine win in the local derby against Ketton – highlight of the match was a hat trick (3 wickets in 3 consecutive balls for those not fully conversant with cricket terminology) for Ellen Marson, which helped to limit Ketton to a total of 167 runs – 37 runs less than they needed to beat Luffenhams total of 204 -well done Ellen!
As its looking like a pleasant evening you may be interested in wandering up to the Oval to support North Luffenham in their Tuesday evening Burrough League Home match vs Great Dalby – start is 18:30, maybe see you there
Those of you who were there on the evening will already know that North Luffenham won 🙂
