Cllr Tony Kemp presents a cheque for �1,000 to Buxton Cricket Club chairman Neil Skitt.

Buxton Cricket, Bowls and Tennis Club has been awarded £1,000 towards improving its facilities.

The donation by Cllr Tony Kemp, from Derbyshire County Council’s Community Leadership Fund, will enable the club to reclaim an overgrown part of its ground at The Park and turn it into a picnic area.

A tea room had previously stood on the site when county-level cricket was played at the ground, although the building was dismantled some years ago.

The donation will fund a mini-digger and other materials, while the club is providing the labour and planting of shrubs, bulbs and ground-cover plants.
