Soggy Southbrook Park Prompts Relocation of Junior Training

It's been a very wet start to the winter sports season, prompting the Southbrook Sports Club to relocate weekly training from its fields.

To protect ground conditions for weekend games, and to continue to provide an opportunity for kids to keep up their game skills, junior training will be moved to Acacia and Arlington Parks in Rangiora. Kids playing soccer on field

8, 7 and 10 year olds will use the parks between 4.00pm and 5.30pm on Wednesday nights only, starting from tonight.

Community Greenspace Manager Chris Brown says "About 72 kids will use Acacia and 48 will use Arlington Park. We ask drivers to take care around these areas while the training is on as they aren't typically used by this number of players".
