August 2019 - Children' Playground Update

Thanks to the additional £398 raised by the raffle held at Dorkfest and the Club's Committee generously pledging to match '£1 for £1' the amount in total that has been raised to date, this brings the NEW total to just over £8,000 - this support is massively appreciated. This has meant we have been able to start preparations for the new playground and order the new equipment. A big 'THANK YOU' to everyone who has contributed!

Dan Lane (Vice Chairman) and his team, has almost finished transforming the playground areas. They initially spent some of their own time and resources cleaning and tidying up the area, before preparing the site in earnest, including:
- installing picket fencing around the cricket pitch and planters
- creating an defined area on artificial turf for 5-aside football, basketball and netball (where the crickets nets used to be) for member's older children, surrounded by mid-height fencing/mesh
- the laying of bark in adjacent areas where there had been stingers, weeds, etc. before, the laying down of grass rubber matting in readiness for the installation of the 1st phase of play equipment this month, as well as the delivery & installation of more playground equipment when it has been made - click here see the plan from Fawns Playtime for more detail.

If you have not been to the club recently, you really must as you'll be astounded by the progress that has already been made. A massive thanks to the Committee, especially the Chairman and Vice Chair, for their efforts and support.

We would also like to take this opportunity thank YOU, the members, for your continued support
