Can you help repair damage caused by leak at village cricket club?

FARNINGHAM CRICKET CLUB APPEAL. Farningham Cricket Club recently completed a renovation of the ladies facilities in an effort to attract and develop a ladies cricket section. Following the work it became apparent (from the sopping wet newly plastered walls) that there was a leak. The heavy May downpours revealed a problem with part of the pavilion roof. This is going to be costly in time and money to repair.  The Cricket club is a big part of the local community with almost 80 junior members and parents attending on a Thursday evening alongside the senior teams and members. The club has seen a revival in recent years and the committee is keen to push this on so is appealing to the community to help to fund repairs. Any advice on sources of funding and help for the club would be very much appreciated. Please contact Oliver Butler at
