Another busy week.
construction work on the 5th is now completed. The dip has been seeded
and the remaining area will be raked off and seeded early next week. The
small depression on the L/H side has been dug out due to the discovery

The whole area will be G.U.R. for the start of the season. Please take a free drop on the left of the seeded area.

Fingers crossed for a good weekend.
