Disabled Toilets Update
Lately, a lot of work with not a lot to show has been going on. It's the usual 5% of the work taking 95% of the time.
What has happened is the wall panels have been fitted, the plumbing and drainage prepared for the sanitary ware and finally, (trumpet fanfare) the flooring has been laid. Not your common tiles but sheeting that also rises up the wall a few inches with an edge like upside down coving that will help keep them spotless.
We are unsure how to describe them due to the current furore about toilet sinage, use, who uses them and how so we will try designating them "Boys or Girls" so that will be BOGS for short.

Space is always a premium anywhere, not just down at Field Place. With these brand new places as yet unspoilt where better to store the odd wheelbarrow, chairs or possably a flagpole, nothing permanent you understand, just out of the way on a temporary basis.
With that in mind our erstwhile Chairman has pinned an official notice on the frame of the gents, sorry left hand bog. The same also applies to the new
store room on the right

Last Sunday, Charity day on 9th September
This was a fantastic day all round, the weather was just as requested. Thank you to all who came along. In addition the trains running from 11 am through to 5 pm the canteen was kept very busy plus the tombola was a success along with the other attractions.
Thanks to Barclays bank then who swelled the money raised by £750 we will be able to donate £1900 to Guild Care.
Our running season is drawing to a close but will will be there on Sunday 23rd September at our usual times of 2 to 5 pm

We are in the North West corner of Field |Place, beyond the Tennis Courts. I suggest that you use the first Car Park entrance on the Right after enetering Field Place having gone past the indoor bowling club on your left. Go through to the second part of the car park and from there there's a fairly direct footpath by the bowling greens on your left up to the footbridge access to the club house as ground level access to the track and clubhouse is closed off on public running days. However, there is a buggy park by our entrance and disabled acccess is provided should it be needed.
