Great Harwood Cricket Club is delighted to report that we have been awarded funding of £1000 from the PROSPECTS Foundation, under their Windfall fund, which will facilitate the development of a food and wildlife garden at Cliffe Park.
Those of you who have visited the club through lockdown will have seen that extensive work, led by Mick Deasey and John Seedle, has already been carried out in regard to this project, and we aim to have this area, which surrounds the existing cricket practice facility, ready for when restrictions ease to the point we can welcome you all back to enjoy some cricket and refreshments.
The PROSPECTS Foundation is Hyndburn’s community owned environmental charity, who aim to improve people’s quality of life through positive environmental action. Through providing practical assistance to develop environmental projects; Windfall grants to support community initiatives; a range of volunteer opportunities and a wide range of accredited training courses, they seek to inspire young people; improve health and wellbeing, support communities, improve the environment and encourage sustainable living.

We would like to put on record out thanks to Julie Livesey and Alison Silver at Prospects Foundation, and to Wendy Litherland who along with Mick Deasey co-ordinated our application.
We’ll keep you updated on progress providing images once the project is complete.
