News Items

Yesterday 15th August, our grounds maintenance contractor experienced significant damage to his mower whilst cutting Stoke Road Green. This was due to the cutting deck making contact with a brick that was in the grass and not easily visible and the resulting damage means that some parts will need to be replaced. He reports routinely finding large stones etc in the grass whenever he comes to mow and whilst he normally looks for and then removes them before cutting, this one eluded him.  

We believe that these stones are being used as football goal markers and we would ask that something other than stones and rocks are used to mark goals; the time-honoured method is, or used to be a coat or a jersey and in my experience that works perfectly well, so could we please ask parents to encourage their children to not use stones etc. Whilst the last thing we are seeking is to discourage play on the green, the bottom line is that stones, bricks etc must NOT be left on the green.

We have a very good working relationship with our contractor and would not want to prejudice that, so your co-operation in this initiative is appreciated.
