Hesketh Bank Cricket Club strikes up sponsorship deal with Becconsall developers
by David Simister

A CRICKET club in Hesketh Bank has struck up a sponsorship deal with the firm behind plans to build new homes on the site of the now-demolished Becconsall Hotel.

Hesketh Bank Cricket Club this week said that Hollins Strategic Land, the company which is pressing ahead with plans to redevelop the former pub site on Station Road, had agreed to sponsor the team this season as part of its commitments to the community, with some of the sponsorship money already earmarked for new kits.

Paul Barton, chairman, said: “Hollins Strategic Land, the building company undertaking the redevelopment of the Becconsall Pub site in Hesketh Bank, have agreed to sponsor the club, as it is a policy of theirs to try and involve themselves in the communities where they are working.

”The demolition and redevelopment of the pub has been a fairly emotive issue, so it is nice to see them helping a local sports club.“

The Becconsall Hotel, which closed in 2009, was demolished last month despite a longrunning campaign to save the Victorian-era site, after West Lancashire Borough Council gave the go-ahead for the building's demolition last year.
