Winter greens maintenance

In addition to the regular winter maintenance, members have been carrying out a considerable amount of work on and around the greens to improve them for next season.

On the top green the old surrounds had rotted and have been completely replaced. The ditches and banks have been lined with artificial grass and the timber bumper strips have been replaced. We are also introducing rink offset, to reduce the wear on the greens.

Captain’s charity for 2017/2018

Our charity for 2017/2018 is the Bone Cancer Research Trust.

Bone cancer can affect children, adolescents, young adults but can also occur in older people, whereas the majority of other cancers occur mainly in older adults. The Bone Cancer Research Trust is the leading charity dedicated to fighting bone cancer and providing support for those affected.

In recent years there have been significant advances in the understanding and treatments of more common cancers, but because of a lack research there has been no significant improvements to primary bone cancer survival rates for nearly 30 years.

The BCRT is working hard to change this and since its formation in 2006 has supported over 60 research projects. They receive no government funding, relying solely on supporters’ and public fundraising.

Let’s do our bit for the Captain’s charity 2017/2018.

For more information about the BCRT visit their website here.

Around both greens the trees and shrubbery have been reduced in height. This will improve the air-flow over the greens and help prevent the deterioration of the greens’ edges.
