Withycombe members and supporters, together with sponsors, were busy at the weekend on the first phase of the car park enhancement scheme at Raleigh Park.
The general plan is to create an easier access to the main car park which involves the removal of the wire mesh fence in preparation for a new timber fence.
The car park area was cleared of grass and weeds in preparation towards planting borders and new surfacing lining and designated disabled parking bays which will be completed later this year.
In addition there’s work to be done on the rear car park area where the metal waste items were disposed of and the grass and weeds were cleared to start the formation of bunds.
The proposed works due later during this year will involve improved footpaths, new gates, segregated vehicle and pedestrian access, Grounds maintenance area and dedicated ambulance access.
Withycombe would like to acknowledge and thank the fabulous help they have had thus far from; Russ Chilton, Carl Cartwright and Mini Digger, Sam Marles and his JCB, Dave Josey, Ian Skinner and Simon Lawrence.
During the first phase of work many thanks are also due to the team of Keren, John and Aaron Annandale for supplying food and drinks to the very appreciative workforce.
In terms of the company support, Withy would like to say a big thank you to Advanced Waste Services for supplying the waste skip, Krysia Linter
Speedy Hire for supplying the compactor plate and also Julian Blake whilst the biggest round of thanks is for club sponsor Sam Marles Plant Hire who have been influential in all areas of the work, especially with the introduction of the companies new JCB 4CX ECO!.
The works have made a start to the improvement plan, but organisers are keen to ask the public and club members to bear with them whilst the area looks like a building site!
The next working party will be in March and the club would appreciate anyone who might be able to help with spare or free, hard-core and timber road sleepers, posts for the next phase of works.
