Bowls Carpet Cleaning


Following repairs to the Proweave Sportsvac equipment the new carpet and ditches have received a long awaited cleaning.

The work was carried out by Rae Johnson and John Stafford who have taken the lead in introducing a new system whereby the green will receive a weekly clean.

Four members have offered to help with this 'hoovering' process which is seen as a two person task lasting up to 2 hours.

Ideally, eight reasonably fit people will be involved working once a month on a rota basis.

Rae is now seeking an additional four helpers to make up the team. Then, following an initial training session including Health and Safety on using the Proweave Sportsvac machine the new regular maintenance process will continue.
