Winterville has now left Clapham Common and all event infrastructure has been removed. A temporary fence has been installed and will remain in place while reinstatement is carried out.
On Tuesday 8th January, the Lambeth Events Team undertook a full inspection with the Winterville organisers to record the conditions of the ground and Talbot Landscapes began ground works.
The event site is currently being scarified to break up the surface mud and lift the grass, this will continue throughout Wednesday. Below is a picture we took onsite yesterday as works started.
Below is a photo of the ground following the first section of scarifying.
On Thursday and Friday, verti-draining will take place to slit the ground and allow aeration which decompacts the ground and encourages the grass to come back. In addition to this Talbots Landscapes will be filling holes and levelling out selected areas.
Over the coming weeks the grass will green, grow and dirt will wash off the surface when it rains.
Next week we will update on the long term reinstatement programme and the likely schedule of works for the area.
During the reinstatement process we want to ensure the fence line is maintained and will be monitoring this, however if you do see it is damaged please do call the office on 0207 926 6207 or email on firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please note that as with all events the ground reinstatement costs are covered by the event organisers.
