Irrigation installation started

The installation of the irrigation system funded by the Places People Play Inspired Facilities grant got under way on Monday, 11th March, despite a blizzard soon after the contractors arrived.

Charlie Paget, the groundsman employed by Nottingham City Council which maintains Highfields Park, came ready to dig the first sod …

… and put a cheerful face on the conditions and the task ahead ….

… but the trench-cutting machinery soon arrived   ….

…and after blowing away the snow the line for the pipework was marked out and trenching could begin.
