On Wednesday May 7th 2014, twenty six students and two instructors from the The Military Preparation College at Haylands visited the Green en masse and worked extremely hard moving about 15 tons of limestone from a depot at the top of the green, onto the sections of footpaths which have been worn by the recent very wet winters. They did a fantastic job in a very short time and we are absolutely delighted with their help. A gallery of pictures illustrating their visit can be seen here.
The stone had been delivered to the site the previous week by Andrew Mills of Derek Mills & Son, Builders. This is a tricky operation as the bridle way is narrow and it is only possible to move the materials in a small dumper truck which necessitates many trips down the lane. Our thanks to Andrew for his help and reliability.
