flooding: The Witchell Pavilion at Wendover Cricket Club has suffered thousands of pounds worth of damage after it flooded at the weekend.

It will need new carpets and ceiling after a water pipe burst on Friday night. It is the second time it has flooded in as many years.

Bookings secretary Bill Brown said the club now had to wait for their insurance company to inspect the building.

“It is a setback. We have bridge nights there twice a week and it is used for private bookings,” he added.
