DAY 2

Day 2

DAY 3

Special stone is laid (30 tonne). Comes from Anglesey and is used wherever in the UK that similar practice facilities are constructed. Thursday will see the area being consolidated by mechanical 'whacker' plate then more stone added to achieve final levels. 

Day 2

DAY 4

Morning marred by heavy rain but still good progress. No visit at end of the day but the following photograph taken at 1000hrs on Day 5.Batting and Bowling end carpets now laid. Work on consolidating the stone edges in progress and the intermediate and surrounding carpet being laid.

DAY 5

Good progress made but Contractors having finished the laying of the carpets took the opportunity to finish around 2pm to head home to beat the Friday afternoon traffic. They return for the final time on Monday to top up the sand infill and carry out the repair to the artificial pitch on the main square.

DAY 5

 HOW TIMES ARE CHANGING!

 Cricket: Halkyn CC dominate at North Wales League AGM

 HALKYN CC capped a great 2009 at the North Wales League AGM.

 The club clinched promotion to Division One in September and on Sunday three members of their squad picked up individual honours.

 Maelor Thomas received the Division Two batting award for scoring 775 runs at an average of 64 and brother Gareth, manager of Buckley Town FC, collected the bowling award for taking 27 wickets at an average of 9.78. To complete a clean sweep, veteran Mike Briscoe collected the wicketkeeping award for snaring 22 victims during the summer.

 Jamie Parsonage, of Halkyn 2nds, shared the wicketkeeping award for Division Five with 13 victims.


 Some of the unwelcome discoveries below the surface of the outfield during recent attempts to rectify the drainage problems which badly affected the 2012 season

 Drainage Project July 27- August 5 2015

Following earlier unsuccessful attempts to rectify the drainage of the outfield eventually funding was obtained to install new primary drainage overlaid by sand slitting as secondary drainage to quickly remove the surface water,

Work in progress connecting diagonal primary drains into the main drain surrounding the square.

WIP

Day 2 of the project. Trenches being cut to a depth of 450mm to allow the insertion of 60mm perforated drain pipe. 

DD2

The following picture shows the completed project. 1.5 miles of primary drainage pipe was installed overlaid by 12000 metres of sand slits to a depth of 250mm. Trenches were initially filled with gravel to within 100mm of the surface then sand added to complete the remaining infill.
Sadly, the type of sand we sourced was not of the ideal type and some additional infill remains to be done before the oufield can be considered safe to play on again.

Further picture will be added over coming weeks.
