Margot James has congratulated Stourbridge Cricket Club on obtaining over £36,000 in funding from Sport England's Inspired Facilities fund.
The fund will be used to build an umpires changing room and carry out improvements to the players' changing rooms and common areas, allowing the club to attract new players and retain its current members.
Margot said: "I am delighted to hear of the funding secured for Stourbridge Cricket Club from Sport England's Inspired Facilities fund. The club is a very important part of the local community and this funding will pay for some exciting improvements which hopefully will help attract even more players and young people to become members and join in with the various activities going on. We can be particularly proud that having won this funding the club will now bear the Olympic's Inspire mark, celebrating its commitment to encouraging sports in the area."
