New Season Preparations

Hello all.

We’ve had fabulous weather over the last few days and everyone wants to know when the lawns will be ready for play again.

The new groundsman, Rupert, made some fantastic improvements to the grass last year but the ground is still soggy and spongy and he has been unable to do the first cut until today.  Even if we don’t get much more rain in the next few weeks it will still take a while to get the grass sorted and for the ground firm enough to play on.  

Paul is planning to mark out the hoop holes over Easter but that’s no guarantee we’ll be able to play. We don’t want to undo the progress we’ve made with the grass by trampling it into mud! 

All things being equal it’s unlikely we’ll be playing before the AGM on 10th April but we will keep it under review and let everybody know if that changes.

Spring Cleaning Days

Meanwhile, we are making progress on plans for a new shed and planning two spring cleaning days so please come along on 23rd and 30th of April to help tidy up the Club-House and the courts.

 Looking forward to seeing everyone again at the AGM and wishing everyone a good croquet season.

Peter, Linda and Lynne
