Working Party Sat 14th October

As the weather looks good, we want to continue with laying our Astroturf on Saturday 14th. We will be starting about 8:30am but if you can join us anytime during the day we would appreciate it, even if it’s only for a couple of hours. It’s hard work moving the A/T around and laying it with just a few people. So no excuses, this will save you money because the new A/T is far less abrasive than the current A/T and your tyres will last much longer. So please support us by giving us a few hours of your time to help us improve the track.

see you there, TORCH Cm

When you are in Curdridge Lane, just after the 40 mph sign (when coming from Waltham Chase to the east) there is a turning on the left with a small wooden stake saying Poplars Farm, turn left into this turning and there should be a silver iron gate, which should be open, go down the dirt track, when you get to the bottom of it, we are just down to the right. From the west go past the Cricketers pub on your left and turn into the farm entrance on the right, 20 metres before the speed limit de-restriction sign. Please drive slowly on the approach to the track and be aware that we are on a working farm.
