BUNTINGFORD'S aspiring Freddie Flintoffs celebrated the opening of their new cricket training facilities last week - thanks to a donation from a housing provider.
South Anglia Housing invested £15,500 in Buntingford Cricket Club in Norfolk Road, as part of a commitment to investment in local communities.
The club spent the money on outdoor cricket nets and artificial turf in a bid to improve the training facilities for young budding cricketers.
During the opening, a new balcony on the pavilion was also unveiled which has been funded by the cricket club and the town council before 40 of the club's colts took to the field to showcase their skills.
Community development manager for South Anglia Housing Rob Barrett said: "We were delighted to support the cricket club for the benefit of both our residents and the wider community."
Buntingford Cricket Club president Sean McGrath said: "This very generous grant has ensured top quality nets which are essential in improving cricketing skills."
