A cautionary note re the drainage trenches on the green. Now that we have darker mornings and evenings, please could everyone be very aware of where they are walking across the Recreation Green as we still have many sunken areas. Due to the exceptionally dry summer the clay soil has shrunk and cracked and the drainage trenches have all sunk. We have so far put many tonnes of material into the cracks and many thanks to the volunteers from the football clubs who have hand shovelled almost 17 tonnes of material so far. However with continued lack of substantial rainfall, the ground is not closing up yet. The Parish Council is monitoring the conditions and will continue to check and maintain the area as safe as reasonably practical.
