ELSECAR Cricket Club has been awarded £43,620 from Sport England.
The club is among 149 projects to get a share of £16.5m of the National Lottery funding distributed by Sport England.
It will use the money to replace perimeter fencing at its Armroyd Lane complex, to provide a safe and secure environment for members as well as those from Hoyland Town junior football club who also use the facilities.
Club chairman Graham Swallow said: "We are delighted to secure this investment which means we can further upgrade our excellent ground and car park."
** The full story appears in the Barnsley Chronicle dated June 5. **
We have been at the heart of our community, every week, since 1858. The town and its people have changed dramatically since then but the Chronicle has been a constant.
It’s our belief that news should be available to everyone regardless of their circumstance. But we need a little helping hand to do so.
Production Editor, Ashley Ball, said: "In an ever changing media world, it’s important that news is reported correctly and without any hidden agenda.
Your support allows us to keep holding decision-makers to account and report on everything that happens in the town, good or bad, fairly."
