Footpath Reinstatement – Topsham Sports Ground

Whilst the sports pitches cannot be used due to the current COVID-19 restrictions, our Grounds Sports Team have continued to take this opportunity to carry out improvement works at our Topsham Sports Ground.

This week they have reinstated the overgrown footpath that runs along the side of the 1st team rugby pitch, by digging out the overgrown grass and levelling it off; reinstating it back to a standard not seen for many years.

Before – overgrown footpath

After – reinstated footpath

 

Season’s Greetings!

Season’s Greetings!

We hope you all have a very happy, peaceful, safe and restful festive period.

We hope you enjoy the University’s Season’s Greetings message:

Celebrating our fantastic Grounds Team staff!

Unfortunately, due to the current restrictions, the annual Grounds Staff Celebration Event could not take place this year.

However, we were determined to still go ahead with the staff awards and pictured are some of the very deserving winners.

The last photo is the creative drum roll done before every award was announced!

We would like to thank EVERYONE in the Grounds Team for all their hard work, dedication and motivation during this very difficult year. You are all absolute stars ⭐⭐

Pitch Improvements – Topsham Sports Ground

Whilst the sports pitches cannot be used due to the current COVID-19 restrictions, our Grounds Sports Team have taken this opportunity to add extra drainage in some of the wet areas at the Topsham Sports Ground.

This is a great initiative by the team and should really help improve our sports pitches so that they are in tip top condition when they can be used again.
