Wet & Wild in the West Country
Charles Lawrence Surfaces have battled with the elements in
storm battered and beleaguered Penzance.
During the wettest winter on record we secured the contract to
resurface Cornwall's, and we believe England's, most westerly
artificial pitch at Penzance Hockey Club.
In a bizarre twist of fate, works began on 3rd February 2014,
just as some of the worst storms hit the region. With transport
links and power services hugely disrupted our workforce have
battled on, and the project is now well on the way to
Charles Lawrence Surfaces Contract Manager Dave Fearn said, "We
are making very good progress considering the terrible conditions,
but we have to take our hats off to all the local residents and the
way they have coped, it has been truly horrendous at times, the
worst I have seen."
The works are being undertaken under the ever watchful eye of
consultants Nottssport. Both the old pitch surface and shockpad
have been removed and are being replaced with a new in-situ pad and
state of the art sand dressed surface produced by Domo. Fully
porous of course!
