Lightcliffe to say farewell to old pavilion

Lightcliffe to say farewell to old pavilion

Lightcliffe Cricket Club’s pavilion, which has provided an iconic background to the ground for over 100 years, will be demolished on Saturday, March 18 at 10am.

To mark the occasion the club is inviting people to witness the end of era, where there will be short speeches and the beginning of the demolition.

The club is moving into an exciting new era with its new pavilion set to officially open in April. The existing wooden pavilion is rotten and beyond repair.

The exciting plans will ensure players, spectators and local groups benefit from fantastic new facilities, including new changing rooms, balcony views, a community room for hire and much more.

It is the latest chapter in the club’s development on and off the field, with five senior teams – four men’s and one women’s – and countless junior sides helping to lay the foundations for future success.

The club is keen to mark an historic moment in the club’s history. New chairman Richard Leach said: “We are proud of our past and excited about our future with a new pavilion set to write a new chapter in our history.

"The existing pavilion has served us well for the last 100 years and it’s important we mark the occasion with a special event at the club. It would be wonderful to see residents from the local community, players past and present and people from across the cricketing family coming down to the club to mark the end of an era, but also the exciting start of a new one.”

Anyone wishing to attend is welcome from 9.45am and they can access the ground via the footpath off Wakefield Road, where they are advised to park.
