Following the frustrations of a very rainy Spring, lawn two was levelled today by our valiant ground staff, father and son team of Russell and Aaron, with help or (hopefully not) hindrance from Guy Priestley and your now exhausted Chairman. Mary Whimster and Nigel Moore were the only other members to volunteer for the original dates but sadly could not make today’s date. Thank you Mary and Nigel. Further thanks to those lovely members who endured the cancellation of one of their bookings and the activities off lawn.
I can certainly say that it was hot work barrowing the soil. I did it for an hour and a bit before young Aaron arrived to relieve me to collapse in the clubhouse taking on liquids.
The sequence was, as I understand it;
I was also very pleased to utilise one of the two bags of topsoil that have cluttered the car park for far too long.
The second bag will be used for lawn one thus improving our club’s image with those using the recreation ground.
