A CRICKET club that had machinery stolen from its shed has received better news – after being given a £1,500 donation.

Players at Binfield Cricket Club

Binfield Cricket Club has received the sum from Linden Homes, which is building properties in the village. The club plans to spend the cash improving changing room facil-ities. Chairman Ian Foster said: “We have a thriving colts section consisting of between 120 and 140 seven to 17-year-olds who train and play at the ground – so when Binfield CC is hosting a match, it becomes a real family affair, as parents and friends all turn out to watch the game. The men’s teams, which play

in the Chiltern League are proud of the fact they field teams that were 1st XI champions in 2012 and 2nd XI champions last year.”

Binfield CC – which next year celebrates its 150th anniversary – also hosts regional visually impaired matches and junior county games.

    They should ask their Ward Councillors ... do they each get £10k a year to spend on local projects?
