Continuing its support of the communities in which it builds, leading housebuilder, Barratt Homes Yorkshire West, has provided Methley Cricket Club with the funds needed for new training equipment for its junior team. The cricket club is close by to Barratt Homes’ St Oswald’s View development in Methley.

Methley Cricket Club, which was founded in 1863, will benefit from Barratt Homes’ sponsorship by replacing their out-dated junior training equipment.

Karen Needham, Sales Adviser at St Oswald’s View, recently visited to the grounds to show the housebuilder’s support.

Ian Savory, treasurer and 1st Xl Manager at Methley Cricket Club, commented: “I’m thrilled St Oswald’s View has sponsored our club this year – the new junior training equipment was desperately needed and the kids are really enjoying using it! We rely on the help of the local community to support the club, so it is brilliant that Barratt Homes has got involved.”

Karen commented: “Methley Cricket Club is an important part of the village’s community, allowing children to be part of a team by getting involved with a much loved sport. We are really glad to have been able to sponsor the team this year, and hope to continue to support the club in the future.”
