April 2016 witnessed the opening of three newly refurbishment hockey pitches across three venues in East Lothian. The existing synthetic turf pitches at Meadowmill, Aubigny and Pinkie St. Peter’s all received a welcome upgrade thanks to the works carried out by Ecosse Sports. The existing carpet and shockpad for each facility was removed from site and the underlying sub-base checked for conformity before a new shockpad and synthetic turf system was installed. Meadowmill received a new FIH Global compliant water-based surface whilst Aubigny and Pinkie received FIH National compliant sand-dressed carpets. All facilities had repairs carried out to the existing perimeter fencing and floodlights, with new sports equipment also provided as part of the contract.

The refurbishment of these pitches continues the huge investment seen in East Lothian in recent years in its portfolio of synthetic sports facilities. Ecosse Sports are delighted to have been part of this exciting project.
