Work has begun on the new net facility for Honiton Cricket Club.

If 2016 was the year of fund raising – the club had to find £38,000 for the project – then 2017 is most certainly the year of the nets being put up, and then serving the cricket club for the benefit of cricketers young and old, make and female.

When completed, the Mountbatten Park nets are going to provide the cricket club with some of the finest training facilities in East Devon.

Machinery is now in place to begin the construction phase.

Cricket club chairman Andrew Lapping says: “We are so excited to see the start of the work on the new nets and I am keen to ensure that we all say a resounding thank you to Clive [Carvell] and his team at MKM Building Supplies of Honiton for their wonderful contribution of the materials needed for the project.”
