Bacup Cricket Club

The club had a dream to improve the function rooms and facilities to provide a better experience for hirers and visitors. The main issue was 25-year-old toilets, which were not up to modern standards. Other essential works were in the function rooms, which are used by members and the public for events and for various user groups. The flooring was worn and difficult to keep clean. The tables and chairs although superficially decent, were 10-12 years old and most of the tables 20-30 years old. The club requested funding from Valencia Communities Fund for all the elements. 

A total of nearly £43k was awarded and the improvements to the toilets and function rooms have been completed to a high standard. The interior has been transformed from an uninspiring space with dark carpets and old dark wood tables and chairs to a bright and modern area. These type of changes to the amenity attract more use and ensure the financial viability of the club.
