Nairn County are delighted to have re-entered into a commercial partnership with Greens Nurseries.
The company supplied a substantial amount of compost, grass seed and chicken pellets to the club yesterday as part of the arrangement. Some of this was then used to fill in the relatively small number of scars on the playing surface to encourage regrowth in time for the start of the new season.
Interim chairman Donald Matheson said: "It is great to have the backing of another local business and this agreement allows us to proceed with the important summer maintenance work which is required to maintain the very high standards that have been set for the condition of the playing surface."
"I would like to thank Greens Nurseries for their renewed support and for the quality of product they have supplied us with. It is great for us as a club to know that we have the support of another prominent local business. I would also like to thank those who have worked hard to get this deal in place."
Station Park Head of Maintenance Stewart McInnes added: "We managed to get to work with the supplies provided by Greens last night, which was important as we do not have too much time on our hands before the first pre-season game at Station Park. That would not have been possible if it had not been for their efficiency in ensuring we received what we required."
"The load we received was substantial and should be enough supplies to last us for several months."
"I would like to thank Donald Green from the Nursery for agreeing to this arrangement and also for all of the additional advice he has given me on top. That has proved to be invaluable."
"I would also like to thank Cranford Builders for supplying a trailer free of charge for us to transport the products from the Nursery to Station Park yesterday."
Green's Nurseries is a family-run business established in 1964 at New Fleenas Farm on the Grantown Road. The Nursery is open 9.30 am to 5.30 pm Monday to Saturday and 10.00 am to 5.00 pm on Sunday.
