Yorkley Star Cricket Club – help keep the history going

Most local people will be aware that Yorkley Cricket Club's future is under threat because of extensive and recurring boar damage on Cut and Fry Green.
The Club has been in existence since the 1880s and matches were played throughout both world wars.
To save the grand tradition of this historic club, it has been decided that a fence will be built to protect the green, after which the damage can be repaired. The total cost is estimated at around £15,000.

West Dean Parish Council started the funding with a cheque for £2,000 and now the Club has been
awarded funds from the highly competitive Tesco’s ‘Bags of Help Initiative’.

In order to determine the amount given by Tesco, the community is asked to vote for the project.

So, this is where you come in!

Please visit your local Tesco (Lydney or Coleford, although I believe any Tesco can take your vote) and cast a vote for the Club during the period 27th Feb to 6th March.

Could you also please print off the poster attached and put it anywhere you can think of – your car, your window, a willing shop etc.

And if you use Facebook or other social media, the attached document can be used to explain what is happening and ask others to help also.

Thank you for all your efforts! We'll post the outcome on this blog when all is decided.
