Barnton drainage renovation works
From Jim McFadyen
BARNTON DRAINAGE RENOVATION WORKS.
After some three years since poor drainage issues at Barnton were first raised with the appropriate authorities (Edinburgh City Council Education Department and their Public-Private Partnership appointed contractor Amey) work is currently underway on drainage improvement works on the top playing field at Barnton.
The schedule of works includes new main drains, lateral drains and sand slits.
This is fantastic as it means that RHCCC will be able to play their home matches in season 2014 once more at Barnton for the first time since 2011.
Now that the drainage issue has finally been resolved, Royal High School and all other users of the top sports pitch at Barnton will now all have a really good sports field.
If you have any stories about your club, we are keen to publish and hear them.
