[Updated on 14/3]
The new clubhouse is built but the provision of ‘services’ has been delayed by the need to move the building 6ft, which was achieved in January. It looks magnificent in its new coat of ‘LCQC Green’. Heavy duty floor covering is in place and a new kitchen is installed. The Sportsfield is now too wet to allow the water and septic tank excavations and installation. This outstanding ‘groundwork’ now requires a long dry period before it can start and, realistically, our move into the new building may not be possible until mid-June 2018.
Therefore the old clubhouse will be made usable for the early season. However there will be a period of weeks before we move when the gas system will be removed for re-installation in the new facility. During this period it will be necessary to bring own flasks for tea and we will have to provide match teas from the large club flasks made at teas person’s home.
Postcode Community Trust is a grant-giving charity funded entirely by players of People’s Postcode Lottery. Our New Clubhouse received £2000 from the Trust to provide solar lighting for the new clubhouse. www.postcodecommunitytrust.org.uk
