Ground Remediation Works
Early January 2012 saw the implementation of the initial stage of an extensive ground remediation works project involving various organisations from the Armidale area. This involved the installation of a vastly improved irrigation system by Armidale Pumps and Irrigation. This set up is able to be automated and provides a large area of watered ground to be used as trial rings.
The next stage, which started mid february includes weed spraying, top dressing, and grass seeding and will greatly improve the training and trialling facilities at Charleston Willows Reserve. These works are all done by our tireless volunteers, if you would like to help out with any of these projects, please contact the club.
For those who have not seen the grounds recently, they are looking great! The irrigation has been finished and adjusted to provide an even spray system, and the grass is looking better than ever. Watering gets turned off over winter as the grass does not grow much during this period, but gets turned back on as the weather warms up. Council's mowing team have been keeping the grass nice and short, and the weeds are being controlled through regular spraying. If you would like any input into the condition of the grounds please contact the club.
