Can you help us make our paddock at the back of the house a safe and secure place for greyhounds to run and play, and help us maintain it?

South Lakes Branch Paddock

We are currently replacing the wooden fence poles with metal ones and the wire mesh with high chain link fencing.  It's our aim to make the paddock another 10 or so feet longer and we need help to clear this area of stones and level it in readiness for the grass seed once the new fence has been installed. The area at the top end of the paddock also needs stones removing and the ground leveling a little more. There is also an entrance through the gate near the underpass so we want help clearing the path leading from that entrance to the gate in the paddock.

Give your Greyhound a run off lead and teach recall in our enclosed paddock for a small donation.

It's our aim once the paddock is cleared and well fenced to allow Greyhound owners to use it for a donation of £5 per 1/2 hour to allow them a run off lead in an enclosed area and for owners to train them recall.
