Much work is of course going on currently with the installation of the new 3G pitch, floodlights and perimeter fencing but that still leaves a significant array of tasks to be carried out around the stadium in general to ensure that the facilities meet the needs of players and supporters alike and that watching and playing football at the Halcyon Wealth Longmead Stadium will be an enjoyable and fulfilling experience.
With two Volunteers Days already gone, and a huge thank you to those who attended, there is to be one more day on Sunday 24th July running from from 10:00am to 3:00pm. For all those hard workers there will two FREE drinks in The Marquee together with complimentary food.
Jobs include general labouring such as moving and fixing signs, painting, jet washing , and attending to the various grass areas around the stadium. Tools and other materials will be provided but if you can bring the odd paint brush that would be great.
Please let Pete Elves know if you are able to come by emailing him on Peter.email@example.com so that appropriate catering etc can be arranged..
Any help that you can give your club would be very much appreciated.
