CLOSE SEASON WORK & MAINTENANCE
The Club is again indebted to our Honorary Vice-President, Bernard O’Malley and Nationwide Produce for their generous help in funding the end-of-season work, which is essential in providing the quality playing surface which we have become accustomed to at the Hesketh Arms. This is undertaken as early as possible in October once the green has been closed. Any delay in carrying out this vital work out would result in it not being as effective.
Thanks should also go to Graham Meadow and George Hitchmough for their ongoing work in co-ordinating the jobs which need doing around the green and the surrounds, which continues throughout the close season.
The Club will again run a full programme of club competitions and weekend events during the 2020 season, starting with a Round Robin on Saturday, 11th April, 2.00 pm start.
