Letchworth Croquet Club had to cancel their AGM due to the coronavirus pandemic, but that did not stop chairman John Noble issuing his annual report to members.
Some plans for the 2020 season will have to be postponed, following a successful 2019 campaign, but the club intend to install an irrigation system to ensure the quality of the lawns, which will consist of a holding tank linked to a mobile lawn sprinkler.
All components have been purchased and most installed with the immediate benefit of electricity supply to the clubhouse.
