5. Club facilities
As you will have heard by now the club have been granted planning approval for the club room. We would really like this to be built by the end of the year, depending on the availability of funds. If there are any members who can offer their services, expertise, however small, or supply any items at cost please let the committee know.
The floodlights, unfortunately are causing a problem, not only with ourselves but the electrical contractor. Your patience is massively appreciated but it is going to take a while yet as the weather conditions are preventing any high level repairs to be undertaken.
