Potters Bar school bowled over by councillors’ cricket pitch cash

POTTERS Bar councillors have stumped up the cash to pay for a school’s new cricket pitch.

Mount Grace School in Church Road has been given a total of �4,000 from six councillors through Hertsmere Borough Council’s Ward Improvement Initiative Scheme.

The cash will be used to replace the school’s current cricket pitch, which has fallen into disrepair.

Cllr John Donne, who co-ordinated the funding application, said: “I’m pleased the school will be able to improve their cricket facilities as I know there is a great passion among both the pupils and staff for the sport.”

The six councillors who provided the cash were John Donne, Robert Calcutt, Paul and Sarah Hodgson-Jones, James Ricks and Martin Worster.
