Deeside College Mechanical Engineering students have kick started the Natwest Cricket Force Weekend for Northop Hall Cricket Club.
In the lead up to the national week which sees volunteers across the UK help their local cricket club to prepare their grounds for the season ahead, the students took two days out of their workshops to tidy, clean, paint and repair.
The group conducted the project as part of their Welsh Baccalaureate qualification, which requires them to undertake a venture for the good of the community. The efforts took the pressure off the Cricket Club and its volunteers during the weekends work.
Northop Hall Cricket Club Spokesperson, Terry Littler said:
“I can’t thank the students enough. It will most definitely take the pressure off for the Cricket Force Weekend. They have worked really hard and been a tremendous help.”
Deeside College Mechanical Engineering Lecturer, Jason Roberts said:
“When we realised that our community project was going to coincide with Natwest Cricket Force Weekend, we immediately contacted our local club. It is great to be part of a national event while also helping the local community. Our students have worked extremely hard and their efforts are well appreciated by the club.”
