A BIG THANK YOU AGAIN – WE HAVE GREAT MEMBERS

The Pirates Club for the first time in many many years has an efficient sprinkler system to water the fields – this is such fantastic news. Thanks goes to JOHN BLAMEY who has been looking at ways to help us for a few months now.  John is involved in irrigation so he used his contacts and managed to get us a sprinkler system donated from a Company by the name of CONTROLLED IRRIGATION – thanks so much to Gareth Manson who so kindly donated the system to the Club. Thanks also to CLIVE BARTMANN who got the pump fixed for us so that it can work non-stop. Thank you so much guys it is hugely appreciated.  If anyone is looking for any type of irrigation systems or a plumber please remember these great guys.
