2020 Building the New Clubhouse

12 February – Little progress during December and January for a number of reasons including atrocious weather including Storm Ciara.  Back on site on 11 & 12 Feb with help from Mike and Jim when the remaining grey roof trims were fitted and rubbish was removed from the site in preparation for delivery of the screed material the following Monday.

20 February – Screed delivery delayed due to 3rd parties. Roof, guttering and gable now complete.

13 March – Following some voluntary work from members earlier in the month shifting concrete blocks onto the site and moving rubbish down to the car park, it was a good turnout from members when the first delivery arrived for the screed materials.

18 March – The following Wednesday, Mark screeded the floors of the kitchen, toilets and hall with some help from Richard and Mike.

April – With the Coronavirus lockdown in progress, Dave Smith installed the two consumer units and connected them to the main supply.

3 June – 29 July – With builders merchants once again open to small builders following relaxations of the lockdown, the floor screeding was completed and by the end of the following week, after a delayed timber delivery, the internal roof structure was well under way.

By the end of July, the plasterboarding was well under way following the completion of the first fit plumbing and electrics.

August – September – Plastering completed in hall, toilets and kitchen.  Kitchen awaits the fitting of cupboard units.  The receiving end of the WiFi link to the pavilion can be seen on the southern end of the clubhouse.

October – November – Plastering finished, base coat on walls in kitchen and toilets, kitchen units fitted, plumbing 2nd fit, self-levelling compound on floors. Rubbish removed from car park.

November – Floors ready for vinyl.
