Since mid-July there has been a concerted effort to improve the Abbey Stadium by carrying out some of the work put on hold or not had time to complete.
A small team of volunteers have worked most days since then to complete the following jobs. This has allowed Ian and Mick to concentrate on the pitch area
The work has been paid for by the CUFC Lottery organised by the CFU on behalf of the club. See link to join the lottery http://www.play2winlottery.co.uk/

CFU and Cambridge United would like to thank everyone who helped during the past month and there are still many jobs to be completed. Some small, some easy, some large and some which will require skilled technicians
We are looking to set up a group for those retired adults to meet up one day a week for example Mondays to complete all the task needed to be done.
If you have retired, please contact me Dave Matthew-Jones firstname.lastname@example.org
Everyone has some of the skills needed and yours may be the one possibly no one else has. I make the tea and supply the biscuits so come along.
As mentioned before the lottery has provided much of the funding for the above work. If you can’t come along you can still help by joining the CUFC lottery
