New Pitch Development

Work has resumed on the laying of the new Prunty Pitch with the contractors moving in last week to begin the drainage programme and groundwork. With a projected six to eight week completion schedule it is hoped the new pitch will be ready for seeding by the beginning of September. This will also clear the way for work to progress on the laying of the walking track around the new pitch and existing pitch. Exciting developments ahead.
