15 April 2021Long Buckby Children's Recreation Ground - Goal Posts

The goal posts in the Rec have been renovated & moved.

The move is a temporary measure whilst we repair the sizeable craters that have developed in the goal-mouths. The repositioning will increase the risk that balls will finish up in the gardens of the adjacent bungalows.

We ask everyone playing on the revised 'pitch' to be particularly careful to avoid this happening.

If we receive any complaints from the residents of the bungalows we will have no alternative but to remove the posts while the ground repairs bed-in (which probably be all the summer).
