CRICKET will be returning to Little Paxton following the news from the Parish Council that an artificial cricket wicket is to be installed on the playing field.

Cllr Alan Denison, chairman of the council's working party, said the new surface would provide a much-needed facility in the village.

Wayne Huttly of Little Paxton CC added: "The cricket club is going from strength to strength and is well-supported in the village.

"An artificial surface means the Club can take part in league games and after an absence of 25 years, cricket will be played again in Little Paxton."

The wicket will be provided by an ECB-approved supplier and will be installed next month.
