Patron’s Message

Despite the weather I am pleased to say that the Trust had record numbers of children involved in their projects which is an incredible effort.

His Grace the Duke of Rutland and I are pleased to grant the BCCT a 50 year lease on the cricket ground and we’re in full support of the new build plans.The facilities at the ground are now not fit for purpose and we are both keen to see the ground redeveloped into something we can all be proud of.

I would also like to say a personal thank you to all the volunteers, supporters, funders and staff. Without you all we would not be able to do what we do.
