Going Update

Wednesday 18th April 2018 at 16:30

Good to soft, soft in places at Flete Park , 1pm, Sat April 21st.

15 April at 14:24

Last fence ready for final trim at Flete Park. As of Sunday 1.30pm soft, heavy in places following overnight rain.

Drying wind now and should be perfect by Saturday, given warm weather forecast as its old parkland turf. Hard work by the Dartmoor and Modbury helpers has ensured we are almost ready to go now.

Will update going later in the week.

Walking Flete Park this afternoon (Sunday) will post going and photos later… last week we had four glorious sunny days followed by rain overnight last night. – Lee Glanville
