Contractor offers to fix damaged sports field at Sunbury West School

A local contractor has offered to help fix a damaged school sports field – for free.

Jeff Lingley of Rainsford Contracting in Fredericton has offered to repair the field at Sunbury West School in Fredericton Junction.

The field was badly damaged earlier in April when RCMP say one or two trucks drove in circles over the turf.

No one has taken responsibility for the damage, and no arrests have been made.

A letter sent out by the school to the community says they're recruiting volunteers to help on the day of construction, which has yet to be determined.

Anyone wishing to lend a hand can visit the SWS Fix the Field Facebook page to sign-up.
