We have raised enough to fix our ground!
We have sold thousands of calendars to people all over the country and the world and thanks to their generosity we have raised enough money to put our ground back to the way it was before the devastating flood. We have also received a generous grant from the England and Wales Cricket Trust.
We are humbled and overwhelmed by the generosity shown by so many people both locally and further afield, we couldn't have done it without you and for that we are truly grateful. Work is under way to restore the ground and we will play our first game at the start of the 2015 season!
Friday 22nd June 2012 was supposed to be one of Threlkeld Cricket Club’s biggest fundraising events - the annual summer dance - on the night before the club took the unprecedented step of cancelling due to the obscene weather forecast for the following 24hr period.
On the morning of the 23rd we stood in awe of the devastation caused by the storm.
Playing for Threlkeld Cricket Club is a labour of love and we face an uphill struggle nearly every weekend of the season.
So, rather than sobbing at the loss of our long shadows on a manicured green wicket, the team packed up their whites and went on a search for the most inspiring and extreme wickets the glorious Lake District has to offer.
We looked VERY high and VERY low in order to find somewhere to play our
unique brand of cricket.
Local photographer Stuart Holmes willingly volunteered to record our antics.
The result is this amazing A3 calendar featuring 12 unique and individual cricketing photos like none you've ever seen before, it's your for £9.99 (+£2.00 P&P)
