MANNING District Polocrosse Club was fortunate not to sustain any damage to the grounds and facilities during the recent floods on the Manning.
The playing fields at Cedar Party Reserve escaped the rising waters of the flood but the fast flowing Cedar Party Creek encroached on the toilet facilities and canteen area.
Fortunately the roadway remained above the flood waters and so escaped any major damage.
The club held a working bee last Saturday to clean up debris left behind after the flood water receded and to mow around the buildings and pathways. With the recent run of wet and humid weather there was plenty of mowing for everyone. Thanks go out to Mark Gillogly, Ian Greenaway, and Wayne, Joanne and Matthew Gorton. Their efforts ensure the polocrosse club has pleasant surrounds to conduct their upcoming training and social days. More working bees are also planned for minor repairs on buildings and fencing.
The playing fields were marked out in readiness for next Saturday's training day which will start at 10.30. Anyone interested in joining the club as a social or playing member or finding out more about polocrosse is welcome to attend.
