As many of you will be aware the Prime Minister announced last Monday that Pubs and Clubs could re-open from the 4th July as long as they are able to maintain social distancing within the area of the premises. What many of you might not be aware of is the extensive renovation work that has been going on in the club over the past three months during ‘lock down’.
The work has included stripping out and replacing all the thirty year old electrical wiring, replacing the old heating boiler and some of the system, installing smoke and fire detectors with a new alarm system, installing a new close circuit CCTV system that covers the entire building, installing a new kitchen and replacing facias and soffits with more work to come specifically new windows and doors and the resurfacing of part of the car park.
The total cost of the refurbishment will be very close to £90,000 which the branch received via a grant from the Armed Forces Covenant Trust Fund.
The club committee have been looking at the realistic time for re-opening the club as the work has created a good deal of mess and some redecorating will be required. With all that in mind the committee are planning on re-opening at the beginning of August 2020 when we hope to have a BBQ and welcome all our old friends back to enjoy the club along with any new members that would wish to join us.
Please keep an eye on the website for further updates.
