Roe Green Cricket club was founded in 1881 and been at the centre of our village at its current location since 1902.
The original wooden pavilion ,built in 1920,and now listed as a heritage asset in the Worsley conservation area and is described as a”typical Lancashire County League Cricket Club building of rural character.
The years of use have taken its toll and major work is required on the foundations and the structure of the pavilion,refurbishment, modernisation are also required before the pavilion falls into disrepair .
The amount of work required needs professionals to do this which is expensive so the club is applying for a grant to cover the costs.
