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.
