Dig deep with Burns & Webber as we partner with The Elstead Borehole Project to help ensure Thursley Road Recreation Green can be enjoyed by all for years to come – sell your home with Burns & Webber in 2021 and upon completion, we’ll make a donation of £500 towards the Elstead Borehole Project.*

Elstead Village has some great facilities, not least the fantastic Thursley Road Recreation Green where children (and adults) enjoy playing with their family, friends and sports teams. These include Elstead Sharks Football Club, Elstead Football Club, Elstead Vets Football Club and Elstead Cricket Club Saturday, Sunday and Junior sections – to name a few!

A lot of work goes on behind the scenes to make sure that the facilities are kept to the highest standard. However, there is one element that is very much needed, but which unfortunately there is never enough of, and that’s water.

As a result the playing area for both cricket and football suffers badly from the lack of irrigation, especially during the hot summer months when there is a real struggle to physically get the required amount of water across the playing field to promote grass growth.

This is where the need for a Borehole comes in!

What is a Borehole?

Water Boreholes (also known as water wells) are deep, narrow wells that tap into naturally occurring underground water.  This produces a private water supply of up to 20,000 litres per day free of charge!

The Borehole will irrigate Thursley Road Recreation Ground with 20,000 litres every day. The work will be carried out by a specialist company who will drill to a depth of about 40m, fit a well casing, install a pump and then fit a cover to protect the ground water supply from pollution.

In addition,  underground pipes will be run from the ground water supply to strategically positioned connecting points across the Recreation Green – this work will be done by volunteers.

How will a Borehole help?

The Borehole will supply a continuous flow of water to power a circular irrigator with a 30m radius. The Environment Agency will allow up to 20 cu m of water to be extracted per day which will bring the following benefits:

•           Save a considerable amount of money on water bills.
•           Avoid restrictions during droughts.
•           Reduce carbon emissions.
•           Greatly improve the quality and quantity of grass coverage.

Your support is key

Help is needed primarily to raise funding for the project to go ahead.  The cost of a Borehole, together with the associated irrigation equipment is likely to be in the order of £20,000.

A Borehole Fund Raising Committee has been set up which aims to raise up to half of this amount via the cricket and football clubs along with other fund raising initiatives within our community.

To find out more about the Elstead Borehole Project and the value of your home, please give our Godalming branch a call on 01483 427101. You can also make a donation direct.
