    Palmerston Clean Up

    Around 20-25 folk put in a great shift today . Weeding , sweeping and shovelling and painting the crush barriers among things that were done . Special mention to a man , wife and daughter ( sorry , didn't catch their names) who came from NEWCASTLE to help with the tidy up .

    The SLO committee would like to thank all those supporters who gave up their spare time today to help with the Palmerston Park tidy up.

    Without your continual help and support these projects wouldn’t be possible.

    Huge respect to the fans who turned up today to toil away in the high temperature - there may have been others
    but I personally saw lads and lasses from the Queens Trust, Travel Club, New Bazaar Doonhamers, Devorgilla Doonhamers and the Globe (Howff) Doonhamers. It must be difficult for Queens to keep on top of the cleaning
    as the Lesser Black Back and Herring gulls cover everything in their s hit !

    What about serving seagull kebabs at the pie hut ? Get rid off the birds and make money for the club at the same time.

    As has been previously stated a very good turn out considering the heat nice to see a mixture of young and old mixing and working hard for the love of the club.We made a great difference to the covered terracing right along to the dug outs and also started the Terregles street end with a few more volunteers we could have started both stands.If anyone can spare any time during the next few weeks I am sure Kevin could keep you occupied.
    Those of you who think the ground staff do nothing think again as the mess they are met with every morning on the pitch is disgusting caused by the sea gulls (feathers,rubbish and food debris) they have to lift this and then sweep the pitch every morning before starting to do anything else.On Friday night against Livingston the gulls were worse than ever please when attending games try and make a small difference by using the bins provided.

    this could and prob is resulting in our surface deterioration ,caused by the seagulls ,an idea here maybe could think about placing a cover over the surface to take the brunt of all this debris at times when theres nothing on at palmy ,i think would be a decent idea to help conserve the surface for longer .

    And how long do you think that would take every day ? You do realise there’s only Kevin the groundsman and a young assistant who’s part-time

    no prob just let the surface get worse then simple until some idea to keep the surface free of the seagull debris the surface will continue to get worse .

    This is a new one - problems with the Palmy pitch are being blamed on the seagulls - what a lot of s h I t e

    The seagull crap will not make much difference to the pitch but is extremely frustrating for our groundsman.

    Talking of seagulls, I heard our ex Morton trialist had took some of the extra sandwiches from hospitality to his mum and dad who were in a car outside the social club. He had put the tray on the bonnet , turned round and Im sure you can guess the rest.
