A new cricket pitch takes pride of place at Ridgeville Primary School thanks to a partnership with PPC cement company and the JP21 Project.

The cricket pitch was officially handed over at the school in Westridge yesterday.

School principal Keith van der Colff thanked the partners for the pitch.

“I hope the pitch will not be a white elephant. I will make sure that there are activities here every day and on the weekends – with every class and the girls as well. We will make use of the pitch,” says Van der Colff.

PPC general manager Clint Wickham says cricket brings everyone together and he is proud to be a part of the initiative.

“Bringing together sport and business with the right intentions can start shaping a new legacy for both us and our children,” says Wickham.

Proteas cricketer JP Duminy says the project was started as a means to give children the opportunity to enjoy “the beautiful game” and that he is proud his vision is coming true.

He says he is grateful to PPC for their support.

“All we can do is lay the platform for you. You need to go out there, play cricket and make something of yourselves, but here we are to guide you,” he says.
