With spring just around the corner, a team of green-fingered volunteers has been hard at work transforming the sloped areas either side of the steps leading down to the tennis courts into a wonderful garden.
Work is still in progress, but things are already taking shape, with hedging, grass matting and beds all dug out and partially planted.
There’s also a new bike rack, which will boost the club’s environmentally-friendly credentials by giving members the option to cycle down for a game and have a place to securely park their bikes while they’re on court.
The work is due to finish soon, when we’ll be unveiling the finished results.
In the meantime, a big shout for all their hard work to Duncan Ford, who brought his expertise from his company www.rdtwoodlands.co.uk to project manage the scheme; Adrian Yates, Paul Rainer, Simon Robertson-Young and Steve Lemon.
Here’s some snaps of the team working up a sweat and getting down and dirty!
