Volunteer Day

On Wednesday 13th June, Gail Barke’s colleagues from Natwest Derby and Burton Commercial Office kindly volunteered to help us out.

The task for the day was to prepare and paint the goal posts, to mow and mark out the pitch, and to enjoy the wonderful location and weather.

Job done!

It was a great pleasure to host this enthusiastic group. They threw themselves into the day, and achieved a great result. The field has never looked better.  You’re welcome back any time folks – Thank you!

Security Improvements

We installed a new combination lock today, along with some security chains on the hinge-side of the field gate. That should stop it ever being lifted off its hinges again.

If you need the combination for the lock, please get in touch with us.

Training for new members

On Sunday 6th May we held an informal training session for new members at the Sports Field. All of the machines were demonstrated and then used to great effect by our trainees. Mid-morning refreshments were provided, including some delicious freshly-baked sweet pastries from the new Church Lane Deli in Shirley. Even the sun turned up.

Thanks to everyone who found time to join us on the Bank Holiday weekend. We look forward to working with you all throughout the Summer Season.
