This event is open to any cricket groundsman in Somerset and is taking place on day two of the Somerset v Lancashire County Championship match. Attendees will get a free match ticket for the game and will have the opportunity to go on the pitch during the lunch interval with SCCC Head Groundsman Simon Lee to hear how he and his team prepare and maintain playing surfaces. There will also be a tour of the machinery shed and the equipment that the groundstaff have at their disposal. The opportunity will also be there to ask questions of the SCCC groundstaff and to speak to other volunteer groundstaff from around the county.
