The stewards turned out again as in past years to help maintain the stadium and take the pressure of the other regular volunteers members that come in everyday. The barriers had all been cleaned down over the previous few days ready for the painters . The group who included Andy Pickard , Fiona Neveille, Rodney Snare, Ivan, Angel, Jimmy Goldsmith
They did a simply amazing job both Mick Brown and I would like to thank them and all the other volunteers for their efforts with a special mention to Dave Matthew Jones for keeping the group in check and for providing me with such a good squad of utility workers.
Paul Harrison also worked all day cutting the pitch to further reduce the height of grass to aid this weeks scarifying , I think he will be pleased to go back to work for a rest.
Mick Brown helped out all day to remove the turf from the South Stand penalty box that was still suffering from the damage caused by last years concert, once the turf is all removed further fibre sand concentrate will be added to the rootzone to reinforce and stabilize the top surface before it is cultivated and re-seeded weather permitting ?.
Thanks again to each and everyone of you that have helped out I am very grateful to you all
