bromham FOLLOW US ONLINE TWITTER.COM/CRICKETCLUBMAG the Skinner Family Trust they served us notice to leave the ground at the end of the season due to the Trustees wishing to redevelop the ground for housing other capital ventures. We made the parish council aware and unfortunately they were supportive of the Trust and explained to us there was no demand for cricket to be played in Bromham, which I found hard to believe in Bedford Boroughs largest village which boasts a population of approaching 5,000 residents. Since then we have been renting at Sharnbrook CC’s ground. Which is great, they are superb and love us being there. But it’s not our own home, which I’m sure you understand.” The Future “Without a shadow of a doubt, finding a new home within the Borough is our priority. I have had promising talks already with the local authority, a national house builder and Bedfordshire Cricket Board with regard to building our own ground. We are hoping, should the plans go ahead, for it to be an all-encompassing facility providing cricket for all ages, sexes and standards. It’s at very early stages and I can’t say whether it’s going to happen. However, I’m not going to die wondering. If the above goes to plan, I’ll have my heart set on a recruitment drive advertising for people from the surrounding area to join. Setting up a youth side and various male and female adult teams playing throughout the week. I am adamant that people will get into this great game providing the facilities are provided for them, all Cricket and sports clubs should be an open shop for everyone to join with a management structure in place to promote the club and deal with every eventuality that could occur on a weekly basis together with providing a sustainable growth plan.” Specialists in the Sale and Acquisition of Residential Development Land Taylor Land Limited is one of the leading land agents located in Bedfordshire and are specialists in the sale and acquisition of residential development land.
