The project aims to celebrate and preserve the heritage of the Lancashire Cricket League, which turns 125 years old in 2017.

Development funding of 28,600 pounds has been awarded by the Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF) to help the project to progress their plans across the League’s clubs in preparation for a full grant application of 338,100 pounds in 2018.

Made possible by money raised by National Lottery players, the project will celebrate the history and heritage of the League’s 17 clubs, covering a large swathe of Pennine Lancashire, flanked by Colne, Clitheroe, Darwen, Ramsbottom and just over the border to Todmorden.

The party is open to all junior members and their siblings who are in year 6 or below when they returned to school in September.  If you would like your son / daughter to attend then please add their name as soon as is practically possible to the list on the main notice board in the cricket club and complete an envelope (available from behind the bar) at the same time as requested.

There is a cap on numbers so attendance is on a first come, first served basis.
