HYDE Cricket and Squash Club has been told it faces another five-figure bill to further renovate its facilities.
The Werneth Low-based side has already spent more than £100,000 on upgrading several aspects, including outdoor nets, toilets, squash courts and the clubhouse.
But further fundraising looks certain to be needed after it was given an estimated cost of £15,000 for a complete restoration of the playing surface and work on its Polytunnel.
Work has been ongoing to renovate the clubhouse, with a new sign being donated and rendering work hoped to happen in February.
It is believed the eventual cost will be in the region of £50,000 and remained on budget, despite several setbacks and additional costs.
In a newsletter, a club spokesman said it is, ‘largely due to the amount of voluntary work undertaken by a small group of helpers.’
That goes on top of the £30,000 invested on outdoor nets and £25,000 each on new toilets, including baby changing and disabled facilities and the squash courts and changing rooms.Despite the third national lockdown, Hyde still has plans to hold a coaching course in the February half-term holidays.
And Friday night coaching sessions are tentatively booked in to start on April 16.
However, both are under review given the changing circumstances, especially the half-term course.
