Great Storm at Handcross receation ground

According to a newspaper report, the recreation ground in Handcross lost 11 trees in the Great Storm.
Here is a view of the football pitch with its boundary with the Fountain Inn. Sorry chaps, but the football’s off this week.
The Large Version shows the Handcross recreation ground along its border with the road leading to the school. Some branches have been ripped from the truck, and the trees have lost many of their leaves somewhat earlier than expected.
