Chiswick Cricket Club held a successful weekend of work at their ground on Riverside Drive (formerly Fullers), as part of the national NatWest CricketForce initiative.

Helped out by club members as well as volunteers from local NatWest branches, Middlesex Cricket Board and members of FC Real junior football team, the club carried out a range of improvements to the ground and its surrounds.

There was work to hang new netting on the net facility, clearance and gardening work, a new clock in the clock tower and painting inside and out of the clubhouse. Outside the ground on Riverside Drive the verges were cleared and lighting added to the fence, as part of a project with Dukes Meadows Trust.

Turnham Green & Polytechnic become Chiswick Cricket Club

Further work in the coming weeks will see the installation of an artificial match wicket and an electronic scoreboard.

The weekend culminated with a big crowd watching the World T20 cup final in the bar.

This is an exciting season for Chiswick Cricket Club, following its renaming from Turnham Green & Polytechnic in the winter. There is a new bar manager at work and things are falling into place for a fantastic season.

Club Chairman Bernard Hughes said: ‘For the second year running CricketForce was a huge success for the club. We are now bringing our facilities up scratch as a first class place to play cricket, for players of all ages. We are investing in the club and want to continue to be an important part of the local community. As we look towards the season we are hoping for new members of all ages, from 7 up to adults, to be part of our journey as a club.’
