One truckload of sand was dropped off near tennis club yesterday and most then spread around the oval. The remaining 6 truckloads couldn’t be delivered because of the rain. The left-over sand needed to be spread out near tennis club as oval was too wet for equipment.
The landscapers couldn’t have the turf delivered became of rain at Esk. We need to wait until the rain has passed. The oval will be top-dressed in September school holidays which is the next available window; according to the landscaping experts.
A new cricket pitch was put it at a higher level with the intention of having the oval drain away to the edges. This was a much cheaper option than previous and needed to be done as the grant application for the oval rebuild was unsuccessful. Filling rather than cutting out and levelling will be done.
As soon as possible, there will be turf placed around the pitch.
The oval has recently been aerated and fertilized. We now have a far superior oval even before it is fully finished!
