Final Preparation Work at the Dog & Duck



During the summer work has been progressing to prepare the Dog & Duck for the forthcoming season for both AFC R&D and Wellingborough Town, with volunteers from both clubs involved. If there are fans who can assist in the final activities of the pre-season period, it has been confirmed the ground will be open for volunteers to come and do some general maintenance work from 10am on Saturday 2nd July until mid- to late afternoon, and at similar times on Sunday 3rd, again starting from 10am, depending on what is left over from the Saturday. Any updates to the schedule will be detailed on this page or on the Diamonds Unofficial Forum.

The work on the pitch is progressing nicely, and repairs are being made to decking and parts of clubhouse ready for some painting.

Main works are likely to be – Weeding/Clearing Grass around fence where it has been weed treated, Jetwashing (cleaning slabs etc..), Painting (Decking/Fences in a few areas/Shed etc..), and also shifting some of the top dressing from the car park to next to Dale’s bar.

As in previous years there will be a free bacon roll for anyone that comes, plus teas/coffee/water.
