Clayton Cricket Club: Demolition Day

The big day finally arrived for Clayton Cricket Club when the old clubhouse was to be demolished to make way for a brand spanking new one. It's amazing, you ask for volunteers to do the teas on a Saturday afternoon and everyone's got a cast iron excuse but ask for volunteers to demolish the clubhouse and everyone's there at 7:30am on a drizzly October Saturday morning with a lump hammer in their hand, raring to get on with it!
I was asked to record the historic event (and the subsequent building work) for posterity and I have to say, it was a right laugh! Health and safety wasn't exactly top of the agenda but everyone got stuck in and the job was finished by 11:00am.
I've included a collection of images below but the full set can be seen on the club website:
