A Bridlington-based sports club has benefited from commuted sums funding awarded during the lockdown.

Bridlington Cricket Club has received £32,062 to enable it to upgrade its practice and coaching facilities and refurbish the clubhouse at the site on Dukes Park.

The improvement to the facilities will support the club’s objective to offer cricket as a sport and social activity for women and girls.

The club is one of seven organisations recently awarded funding from East Riding of Yorkshire Council as part of commuted sums from local housing developments.

Councillor Gary McMaster, portfolio holder for Place Shaping including Operational Services, said: “I am delighted with the range of organisations and excellent projects that we have been able to assist across the East Riding through commuted sums provided by local housing developments as a condition of their planning approval. I look forward to seeing all these exciting projects – and many more- come to fruition in the months ahead.”
