CCTV installed after vandals twice hit Bedale Sports Club


The new cricket nets at BEDALE Sports Club and Community Center have been vandaled twice in a matter of days.

The nets were opened last year by Yorkshire County Cricket Club batting coach Paul Grayson.

Bedale Cricket Club secretary Paul Croft said: “Two pieces of the new net, about four square meters in size, were cut overnight, which I can only assume is from a gardener who wants protection of plants against birds. There is no other reason and it seems that the net was ordered and for a specific purpose. ”

AVE Aerials cricket club member Sean Ellison has now fitted four CCTV cameras at the clubhouse with a high definition night vision camera, pointing directly at the cricket nets to deter further theft. Sean said: “My family plays cricket in Bedale and I know how hard the committee is working to raise money for the new nets, so I was delighted to help provide this safety system.”
