A cricket club has received a cash boost towards an ongoing renovation project, helping to safeguard its future.
Potton Town Cricket Club has already expanded its pavilion and has new changing rooms, a members’ bar and gym.
Now house builder Kier Living Eastern - which is building a new development nearby - has donated £500 to the club to continue with the revamp.
The firm’s managing director, Nick Moore, took a tour of the new facilities at the Hollow cricket ground near Biggleswade last week.
He said: “We are delighted to have been able to give this donation to Potton Town Cricket Club.

The club’s revamped pavilion opened on May 22 last year.
To mark the occasion a team made up of PTCC club members involved in the development of the pavilion, played a Beds Cricket invitational XI.
The redevelopment was supported by the Hutchinson family and the Potton Charitable Trust whose endowment of The Hollow and much of its infrastructure has allowed the club to continue expanding.
Other donors to the development, included Sport England, ECB, Potton Consolidated Charity, Central Bedfordshire Council and Wixam Tree Trust.
The pavilion aims to serve as a landmark facility for the town.
As well as hosting cricket, it has two resident businesses, The Barns Fitness Studio and The Boundary Café.
The first team plays in the Bedfordshire County Cricket League - Premier Division and the
Hertfordshire Cricket League - Division Two B.
