Recently, during the storms some of the tables outside the Abbey Arms were damaged.
The tables were purchased by the CUFC Lottery last summer and were badly damaged when blown over.
There was a discussion that they were beyond repair and would need to be scrapped.
Fortunately, we have Mick Radford helping us around the ground as a volunteer. He does not come to matches however I have known him for nearly 40 years. He helps us on a couple of mornings each week. Mick used to work as a maintenance man at one of the colleges before he retired. His knowledge and skills really make him invaluable to us. Even if he does think I am a bodger.
Luckily he was able to take each of the tables all apart and rebuild them. This saved us nearly 200 pounds to replace them.
