MOLD Cricket Club recently underwent a facelift thanks to staff at ClwydAlyn.

The renovation took place thanks to Clwyd Alyn's Give and Gain days; a scheme where members of staff give back to their area by enabling workers to take part in voluntary work to help enhance communities.

Housing Link Officer, and Mold Cricket Club committee member Lisa Jones revealed how she got involved with the club and the huge difference the improvements are making to all who play there and use the facilities:

“My two boys, Ollie and George have both played for the club for several years now. Ollie started by playing for the Under-9s, and George played for the Under-13s, and they both play in the senior team now.

“I went along to meetings at the club and eventually became part of the committee, and we got talking about how to get the funding to bring the clubhouse up to date.

“I told the club committee about ClwydAlyn’s Give and Gain days, where the company gives for the community’s gain, from there we were able to arrange for materials to be donated and for staff to work alongside professionals in painting the kitchen and bathrooms and refitting a whole new kitchen.

“We were lucky that ClwydAlyn donated all of this, including all the units, new flooring, and anti-slip flooring for behind the bar and for the toilets.

"Myself and my colleague, Lisa Best, got stuck in and regrouted the tiling and even decorated too!


“The result is that we now have a clubhouse that is used by the whole community at very reasonable rates."

Thanks to the work which was undertaken, membership fees at the club are the same as they were six years ago.

The club is utilised as a multi-purpose hub within the Mold community, playing host to band rehearsals, a bellringing club, Slimming World, and facilities available for hire to groups in the area all year round.
