Two new housing sites named

Monday 20th December 2010

The Club would like to thank all members and supporters who took the time to vote in our name the two new streets poll. In conjunction with Canterbury City Council and Bellway Homes, Kent Cricket was looking for suggestions for names of the two new housing sites.

Initially we planned to produce a shortlist but, due to overwhelming popularity, it has now been agreed that the Bat & Ball site will be renamed Boundary Gardens and the nets site will take on the new name of Woolmer Close, after former Kent and England all-rounder Bob Woolmer.

Commenting on the news, Richard Moore, Transportation Team Manager at Canterbury City Council, said: “Canterbury City Council would like to say a big thank you to everyone who took the time to get involved with the naming of the two new development sites at the St Lawrence Ground. We are very pleased with the names that have been chosen. They certainly fit the location well and it is always nice to have some local input into local issues. Once again, many thanks to all who participated.”
