The ongoing challenge with bird damage to our grounds at Broxhead Common related to chafer grubs exacerbated by the hot summer has had quite a detrimental effect to the outfields, in particular the upper field .

As a consequence the upper field at Broxhead has undergone work this month including three way scarification, reseeding, and fertilisation.

Vertidraining will also take place in advance of the 2023 season along with our ground at Grayshott to improve drainage following the compaction from the heat this summer.

You can see from the photo above when worked started last week, it was quite a frosty morning….
