Day of Action, July 7 2019
ARGYLE chairman Simon Hallett hailed the Green Army after the Pilgrims' first ever community Day of Action left Home Park gleaming in the summer sunshine.
Supporters joined club staff and professionals on Sunday to help prepare the Theatre of Greens for the upcoming Sky Bet League Two season.
As the vounteer fans cleaned the concourses and scrubbed the seats, Pilgrims' owner Simon and his wife Jane were among those who popped in, rolled up their sleeves, and helped out.
Simon said: “It’s been a great day to have the fans here to help us. We have about 120 people, which is a really good turn-out – it shows how much everyone cares about the club.”
In terms of fans who assisted, I spoke to a group who did not want to be named individually but only collectively as “The Heroes of Bobby’s Garden”. They helped to clear the area between the Devonport end and Mayflower Grandstand side – a space dedicated to former manager Bobby Williamson.
They said:” We think this is a great idea and it really good to see everyone come together to help the community.”
The club would like to extend its thanks to event sponsors PASOTI (Plymouth Argyle Supporters on the Internet), NeedACab and the Green Taverners; to 5Star Cleaning service for supporting the event; and to the always magnificent Green Army.
