Trust's Grant Helps Keep Dunstall Pavillion Fit for Cricketers
Following last Winter's closed season Dunstall Cricket Club's inspection of their splendid pavilion at the Deer Park ground found that water had penetrated part of the roof and urgent repairs were needed to get the building fit for use in the busy cricket season.
Geoff Shilton, Dunstall Cricket Club's vice chairman, said 'The Cricket Pavilion stands empty over the Winter period and our pre-season inspection revealed that water had penetrated the timber & felt flat roof rotting the boarding and its supporting trusses'.
With the cricket season fast approaching and Club funds being at a low ebb the Club appealed to the Trust for an urgent grant towards the £1,851 cost of the repairs.
Barton & Dunstall Key Trust trustees, impressed with the outstanding contribution that Dunstall Cricket Club makes to Dunstall's community and particularly their coaching and encouragement of youngsters, were pleased to provide the full amount so that repairs could proceed without delay.
