Safety Notice
Can we please ask that everyone respect safety measures that are in place around Pearse Park?  Please do not remove the bollards that are in place beside the turnstiles.  These are only to be removed for emergencies or by committee / coaches to access the grounds.  Due to the high volume of traffic using our grounds we ask all users of our pitches and walking track to use all car parks available and not to park & block gate ways & bollards.  This is for the safety of all our members.
