Motherfield Drainage Improvements
We are happy to announce that we have started works to improve the drainage on the main field by releasing air and nutrients into the soil. The works will take about two weeks and involves a vehicle driving on the grass inserting a tube into the soil. It won't be too intrusive but there is a little noise generated and we apologise for any inconvenience caused.
The recent heavy rains meant that unfortunately the sand pit was waterlogged. It is now back open as we have cleared out the water and clogged sand and replaced it with fresh sand. This is a temporary measure but we are working on more long term solutions to try and prevent this in future years.
