Following a visit by the county greens adviser, a plan of action has been agreed to try to bring the green back to its historical best. The greenkeeper, Dan, has already started by spiking the green; this will mean that the green will feel a bit more spongy.
Together with the work that Dan is doing, we have agreed to do some work ourselves. From the middle of October we will be having our usual Wednesday maintenance meetings which will include a gang of members close spiking the green at the rate of 1 rink per week so that over 6 weeks the whole green will be thoroughly spiked.
We plan to have the green open for play until the end of September and Alan Watts is planning on the pairs league to continue until then. The league has proved very successful and everyone seems to be enjoying themselves. Thanks to Alan Watts and Alan Tarrant for the bar. If you are playing in the game you should have paid your subs, which will cover you for next year as well, so if you haven’t paid, please see our treasurer Phil Provis. If you would like to play, it’s not too late, just advise Alan Watts of your availability and he will include you.
Don’t forget we have a facebook page (link at the bottom of this page).
