The experience of one of our former volunteers shows that the Shed, which had a grant awarded towards its renovation, is already giving positive support to individuals as we work together.
"It always amazed me how many bacon sandwiches and cups of tea were served at the old Scout Hut whilst it was being renovated into a Community Workshop! I was involved from the very start working as part of a team of volunteers for one day a week and over the months real progress has been made. The eight months I worked on the project really helped me grow in confidence and learn some new skills. Since leaving University I had been job hunting without any success and feeling pretty low. Going along and working with others has been really encouraging. In September I started an internship so I can no longer work there but it’s great to hear that the team hope to get it ready to open in early spring next year.
Horsforth Cricket Club
Cricket matches finally got going under specific Covid-19 guidelines on 11 July.
After the constraints of lockdown there was lots of enthusiasm from children and families.
The new pitch cover, purchased with the grant from Horsforth Town Council, was available to use from the start of the season and although the weather was not as wet as some summers, it has made a real difference not least because it does not have tears in it like the old one!
We fielded three senior and five junior teams in what turned out to be half a season of fixtures ending last weekend. We also ran All Stars for five to eight year olds and three weeks of summer camps.
