News from Hawkinge Parish Council - 26 June 2008


Hirers of the Ground have been notified by the Parish Council that the Ground has been closed to enable the grounds maintenance works to be undertaken. Parish Council policy is that casual use is a feature of the ground and it does not intend to officially close the Ground unless advised to do so during the course of the maintenance works.

Whilst the PC does not physically close the ground, it does ask that heavy, organised use of the ground ceases for a period to allow it to rest whilst the maintenance contract is carried out.

The Parish Council has made this request in writing to all hirers of the ground. This is to ensure that maximum benefit is obtained from the substantial amounts of public money spent on the ground maintenance contract by the Parish Council in previous years and consolidating that work again this year.

It is anticipated that the Ground will be available for hire by mid to late July 2008.
