Next Home Game

Monday 20 August East v Letchworth Reds

Wednesday 15 August

 

Over the last five days, in three separate sessions, all three of our lawns have been repaired, mowed, whitelined and watered; hoops moved and set on lawn 3; bushes have been moved, and ground prepared by the silver birch tree, in preparation for the possible installation of benches; brambles and privet have been trimmed and cut back...by (in various combinations) Dave Hill, Alan Bateman, Ian Moore, Brian Dawes, Peter Brock, Brian Sturt, Phillip Hawes, Marion Cuckson, Fiona Fall and Andrew Fall.

 

They and others (notably Michael Broadway and John Street) convene most weeks (usually for 2-3 hours on Saturday or Sunday mornings) to keep the lawns prepared both for club sessions and matches. There are two of these in the coming week: against Newport on Friday, and Letchworth on Monday.

 

The heatwave is over, but the milder, damper weather will simply mean that the grass will grow with renewed energy...so maintenance remains vital. And we will soon be restarting the spraying programme to tackle the dry patches and feed the grass.

If you can spare some time to help, please watch out for emails about upcoming sessions and come along, even if it's just for an hour. You won't be asked to do anything dangerous or unpleasant, or that you haven't been shown how to do.

 

If you can't come to these sessions, please remember to set up a sprinkler if you come to play and there's an empty lawn: watering is still desperately needed, particularly along the edges of lawns 2 and 3, and on the area of lawn 1 closest to the entrance.
