Stanley Turner Ground Works

By Dave - Posted on 27 June 2012

Wendy recently met with Lewes District Council and was advised of the following works at the Stanley Turner Ground:

'Last week I joined Linda Lusted (LDC Parks Supervisor) and Peter Sealey (Lewes Sports Club) for a tour of the Stanley Turner Grounds and a preview of some works which are being planned, specifically:  <?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" />


1)  There are several old willows near the main rugby pitches and the children's play area which need to be reduced and the debris taken away.  Also there are places where the vegetation has encroached on the grounds and this will be cut back to the boundary line.  


2)  Various methods for dealing with the proliferating rabbit population are being considered and a plan to reduce their numbers, in order to halt the damage they are causing to the playing fields and the hedge, is being developed.  


3)  The open litter bin at the far end of the carpark near the trees next to the cricket pitch will be removed to stop the contents being spread around the area by local wildlife.  A new litter bin will then be installed on the verge of Cockshut Lane near the cricket pitch to enable passers-by to deposit their litter responsibly instead of chucking it over the fence.  The open litter bin by the cricket pitch gate will remain.


The timing of these works has not been fixed but I will keep you informed of developments as I hear about them.'
