Spring Update – Clearance and New Stores

Over the last months we committed to clearing 128 cubic meters of soil and vegetation to our rear alley. The work was carried out over three weeks with a borrowed plant (thanks Steve) and a never ending series of waste skips. Once clear and level with our volunteers we poured two concrete rafts (again at cost) in order erect the two new concrete buildings now in situ. This whole exercise was labour intensive and perhaps the largest cost we have experienced in recent years.

Our number one priority given the subsidence and condition of the building is to capture funds to start the build of our intended club house and community facilities. Our strategy and need dictated that we must make arrangements for continuity when the existing building starts to come down, we need accommodation to store furniture, our belongings and to house the bowling teams and members, hence the two new buildings.

It is our intent to erect a third building that will be the bowling and members area but that is on hold at present as  funding we were promised from Bury MBC did not materialise.

We will keep you updated on all matters and issues, if you have any questions please do not hesitate to ask.
