1 March 2018 - Garden path and marking out of Courts 1 & 2
The new Garden/patch project at the river end of courts 1 & 4 was completed a few weeks ago.
Once the weather improves Courts 1 & 2will be marked out for play.
We may mark out court 1 a little shorter as a temporary measure until our new access steps have been built.and these have been promised before the start of the summer season.
Court 1 will be back to full length by the start of the summer season.

9 March 2018 - New access steps for our croquet courts
You may have seen (or be seeing shortly) some work being undertaken on the access steps to our courts.
John from our maintenance staff is doing the building.
Because court 1 one has had to be moved away from the river by a yard or so to accommodate the new path and garden project, the access steps to our courts are being moved by the same distance in order to line up with the now reduced gap between courts 1 & 2.
The old steps were a bit of an eyesore anyway and so the opportunity to have some new ones built was all part of our arrangement that went along with Club’s path/garden grounds improvement project - The end result will be a nice improvement once completed.
Our plan is to site the hoops on court 2 very shortly and follow that with court 1 once the steps work has been completed.
20 March 2018 - Work has started on our new access steps for our croquet courts
Work started on our new steps this week and should be finished soon.
I am also assued that sufficient new 'stop boards' have been made to cover the new path and that these will be in place before the start of the season proper.
