Stourbridge Cricket Club Pavilion Funding AppealA 157-year-old cricket club in the Black Country could be forced to close its historic pavilion amid safety fears.

Stourbridge Cricket Club, founded in 1842, based at the Memorial Ground, High Street, Amblecote, needs £10,237 to update its 40-year-old wiring system to meet national heath and safety guidelines. 

The club's 366 members have applied to Dudley Council's Stourbridge Area Committee for £8,000 and plan to match the amount themselves through fundraising events.
