The beautiful village of Tattenhall in Cheshire
Martin Cooke: October 2015
Regular visitors to the Flacca over recent weeks may have been wondering what has been going on behind the tennis courts.
First came the gridlines making it seem as if this was to be a miniature playing field for American Football; then came the progression of molehills , neat and well-ordered, between the gridlines. And now the whole area is enveloped in white plastic.
But what is really going on? Under the plastic will be the new croquet lawn for Tattenhall. Over the past two years, twenty or so hardy members of Tattenhall Croquet Club have been playing on the undulating surface between the cricket and football fields. The new area will hopefully emerge as a flat playing surface in time for the 2016 Croquet Season.
In the meantime a plea to dog walkers and footballers — we'd be grateful if you would keep your dog on a lead and off the newly seeded and top-dressed area.
