Restricted re-opening

Thanks to hard work by the Management Committee, green keeper and maintenance team the Club green only has opened for the first time this season. It may not be what we expected or hoped for for this season but, considering the situation just months ago, it is something. It is, for those willing and able to participate, an opportunity to get a little more exercise and meet, at a socially aware distance, friends.

Ian Gauld was one of the first to have a roll up and said “It felt wrong. We should be involved in so many matches now and I was up there on my own with everything shut up and barriered off.”

Here are some of his images from his visit:
