New contractor for Albert Road lawn

Great news on the lawn front… there should be no six-week shutdown this year!

The frustrating annual closure for lawn maintenance should be a thing of the past with the appointment of Bicester Turfcare’s Chris Buswell to look after our grounds.

Buswell is confident that there will be no need to stop playing in the autumn and that he will be able to keep our lawn in good order throughout the year. The former greenkeeper comes highly recommended after a 20-year career looking after golf courses. He has signed a one-year contract with us.

Chris made an early visit to Albert Road for the purposes of diagnosis and returned to spray a seaweed-based treatment (pictured) to encourage a stronger growth of turf — hence the whiff! He will liaise regularly with our trusty band of lawn-care volunteers.

Buswell’s monthly visits will be flagged in advance on TeamUp.
