David Cameron has the scissors out again

Having spent his first two months as Prime Minister cutting spending across the country, David Cameron took a break on Friday to snip the ribbon at Chadlington Cricket Club instead and unveil their new match pitch.

The pitch was installed thanks to funding from The Lord’s Taverners and MCC Foundation who between them contributed £7,375 of the £9,013 total cost. The Lord’s Taverners, the official charity for recreational cricket and the UK’s leading youth cricket and disability sports charity, is currently celebrating its Diamond Jubilee and has donated over £400,000 to cricket clubs, schools and youth organisations in the form of cricket equipment bags and grants for non-turf pitches and nets.
