Recreation Ground matters in May

The refurbishment works on the outside toilet block has continued apace with the full structural roof overhaul complete with internal decoration and internal works due to be completed over the next few months, hopefully in time for the new cricket season.

The cricket square preparation has started with the application of loam followed by lots of pitch rolling and grass cutting. We are expecting a full schedule of cricket over the summer, with the Ground hosting both Huish and Milverton teams again. There is nothing better than watching the game from the Pavilion veranda, sipping drinks under a summer sun – well we hope the weather will oblige this year and give us some wonderful cricketing moments. A full fixtures list will be published shortly.

The Trustees are also refurbishing the old pavilion scoreboard with funding support from the Jubilee Committee. We are please to be working with the Jubilee Committee on this significant village project using funds specifically raised for community projects like this.

The old mechanical score boxes have been removed for overhaul, with external decoration starting soon. Our intention is to have the original scoreboard in operation for the start of the season to provide a lasting commemoration to her late Majesty.
