Friary Bowling Club
The Green team have been working very hard to keep the green and surrounds in good order. We have generally removed all the autumn leaves and detritus and kept the grass down to a reasonable level and sprayed the weeds and moss as necessary. Several journeys to the tip have been undertaken to remove some redundant items and the amazing amount of grass which is generated even in winter.
The mower has been serviced and Les Nicholson will start cutting regularly from mid February. I met Marcus Hewitt our green "consultant" and he is pleasantly surprised by the quality of the green. It has a very good covering of grass and is generally weed free and showing lots of good quality "fine" turf. He will return in March to continue advising us on the maintenance and improvement of the green.
We will continue to prepare the green and surrounds for the start of the season.
