Members working on the green
Week beginning 4th October 2021 in preparation for the
2022 Season, coring the green, topsoil and reseeding.

We have started the hollow Tining of the green but got rained off.
Subject the weather conditions we will carry on with the tining
Monday morning.
For this we would ask for volunteers to come and help?
Ladies and Gentlemen welcome. 

The work will consist of sweeping and cleaning up after the machine.
We have 2 shovels and 3 sweeping brushes at the club but if you bring
any with you it would be fine.

The Ladies were short of a player, so

sent along
Petra Hardstone
to help the Ladies out.
Not sure if Petra will be playing

any more games.
