Ground Works Project 2013

We have undertaken a large groundworks project to flatten the hill on our ground and to move the cricket square 15 metres away from the adjacent road. The fantastic new ground has been used since the start of the 2014 season. 

The new cricket square was supported by a grant of £11,200 from the South Oxfordshire District Council Communities Capital Grants fund.

Please find below a selection of photos taken before, during and after the project. Also, take a look at the Pavilion Project.
