This is the size of the task preparing the ground for CountryFile Live (CFL) at Blenhiem Palace on 2-5 August. After last years success, the Croquet Association was asked by CFL to lay on another demo court this year, except a bigger court this year. The bulk of the work in preparing the ground falls to the local croquet club, ie Eynsham and so for the second year Pat and Tony have started the preparing the ground with a 1st cut. The parkland was given a rough topcut by the Palace groundmen but the rest will fall to Eynsham Croquet Club to give it 3 or 4 cuts to bring it to playing standard.
This is a huge effort and you can see how much has to be removed.
Well done Pat and Tony.
