If you regularly visit the recreation ground in South Avenue, you will not have failed to notice the building work taking place on the eastern side of the clubhouse, if only because of the huge scaffold ‘tent’ erected to avoid work being delayed because of bad weather! As a consequence work is ahead of schedule and, by the time you read this, the scaffolding should be down and the external building work close to completion.
The Club has very much appreciated the forbearance of its neighbours in South Avenue and other Hurst residents using the footpath across the recreation ground. The good news is that by early spring, the Club, and its building contractor Closewall Ltd, aim to have things back to normal.
