Close Season HELP Required - PLEASE READ

1 month ago By Andrew Cox

All HELP very much appreciated...



Here at Chasetown FC there are numerous tasks that need to be carried out when the football season has ended, to get our ground tidied up and ready for the new season.

Some of the tasks are regulatory and are needed to be done to allow us to maintain our ground accreditation, others are just to make our ground tidy and acceptable to both our fans and visitors to our ground.

A list of all tasks is shown below, and we would like to see if there are any of our supporters who are able to spare us some time and effort to carry out these tasks.

All materials will be supplied and where possible tools will be provided also.

The tasks DO NOT all have to be done in one go, they can spread them out to suit individual timescales.

If you see a task below which you feel would be within your scope please let one of our club officials know, and we will sort out a plan.

We understand that this looks a lot of work, but we have around 3 months to do it, any help you can give us will be greatly appreciated.

If there are any jobs you think you can do, but are a little unsure of what exactly is required please do not be afraid to ask someone, and we will supply you with materials / tools etc. to help you.

We would greatly appreciate any help in this matter.
