Residents and community groups in Ribble Valley are invited to a public meeting to discuss the future of Chipping Cricket Ground.

The ground’s owners have announced their intention to sell it.

However, as it is included on the Ribble Valley Register of Community Assets, local groups and individuals are entitled to express an interest in acquiring the site as a community facility before it goes onto the open market. The meeting will take place at Chipping Village Hall on Thursday, March 27, at 7.45pm, and anyone interested in acquiring the ground as a community facility is invited to attend.

Alternatively, they can register their interest with Ribble Valley Borough Council’s head of legal and democratic services, Diane Rice, on 01200 414418, by Thursday, May 1st.
