LON­DON: Bath Cricket Club be­comes one of the first char­i­ties to ben­e­fit from the Government-backed ‘Fund­ing for Lend­ing’ scheme. Founded in 1859, Bath Cricket Club has a 600 strong mem­ber­ship and been des­ig­nated a fo­cus club by the Eng­land & Wales Cricket Board (ECB) to be a hub of the com­mu­nity net­work for cricket devel­op­ment, par­tic­u­larly for the ben­e­fit of chil­dren and young peo­ple. In re­cent years, the cricket club has at­tempted to raise funds to re­place the main club­house as it was in des­per­ate need of im­prove­ment, re­pair and dec­o­ra­tion. This plan was aborted last year but the build­ing still re­quired ma­jor re­pair work in­clud­ing a leaky roof, rot­ten wood, re­dec­o­ra­tion, new fur­ni­ture and a larger kitchen.
