Burnham Hillside Bowls Club's Green has for a few years now been complimented by not only its own members but many visiting bowls clubs and as all members will know the condition of the green is as a direct result of the tireless voluntary work the green team and its helpers put in to it each year. However, many of you will not be aware of what work takes place on and around the green other than the general cutting of the grass. I felt therefore that it may be of interest to some people to be aware of what else takes place to ensure the club's green and its surroundings are kept to the standard we all enjoy and appreciate. To this end I have decided to record a year's work on and around the green which I hope you will find interesting? The obvious starting point for me is from the first day of laying up the green, which follows the last Sunday of the Summer season and for 2014 that was Monday 29th September. As the year goes by I will report on a weekly basis and show photos, so this web page will expand as time goes on.
As a final word before I start the year's report it is without doubt that we all owe our appreciation to Graham Pinch, the club's Green Keeper, as without his knowledge and enthusiasm we would not have the excellent green we do have.
