Work on the pitch at the Abbey Stadium is now completed ---- The seed is spread and with the right weather conditions it should be starting to show growth by early next week.
It is also up to the bird scarers to ensure to seed is not eaten. In the photo above you can see them on patrol
There was a lot to do in a short period of time. However, thanks to equipment hired from Ernest Doe, the knowledge of Mick Brown and Ian Darler it was completed in time.
This type of pitch work can only be done because of last years full blown renovation. Next year will require a more comprehensive renovation.
Just for information when cutting the grass or scarifying with the mowers it is really relaxing and calming
