Friends of Brancepeth Cricket Field (FBCF)

The FBCF is an association of enthusiasts wishing to see the Cricket field continue as a village amenity supported by villagers themselves, for recreation, relaxation and a focus for village events, celebrations and fun; all those things which bring people together.

To that end it proposes to arrange and support activities on the field in partnership with the Parish Council which includes the field in its plans for the village, that the field should “play an active part in providing facilities and opportunities to promote the physical, mental and spiritual well-being of the community…… and fully embraces this spirit of localism and co-operation.” [Parish Plan Issue 2 December 2017.]

To this end, the FBCF have convened and set out the following Objectives: To ensure that:
(a) the Cricket Field continues to be a resource for all villagers to enjoy as an outdoor exercise or play area
(b) the area is secured for the present and the long term and
(c) new ideas will be developed about how the Field can be maintained and more widely used.

Membership is open to all interested in actively furthering these objectives and to those who simply wish to show their support. Please use the form below
