Essential repair work underway.
As noted in the previous web news section, we are beginning to make progress on the Club House refurbishment. I also mentioned that your Committee had taken the decision to bring work forward on some of the smaller, less contentious elements.
You will have noticed that preliminary work has already commenced identifying the cause of subsidence to the outer wall leading down to the changing rooms. Quotes have been sought from sources within the club to resolve the issue, early in the new year.
In addition, the proposed design in the original plans for the new storage facility for tables, chairs etc has been shelved. A cheaper option is to be erected along the back of the patio over the changing rooms that will also incorporate a covered extension to accommodate summer BBQs. Quotes have been received and are in the process of evaluation, with a view to completing the work as soon as is practicable.
We also intend to also bring forward, long overdue repairs to the clubhouse roof which were identified in a structural survey carried out in 2012. Quotes from suitable sources within our membership will be requested at the earliest opportunity in order to progress this work with the minimum of delay.
Until the conservatory replacement has been built, we have decided that in the interim, the conservatory roof joints and the flat roof across the top of the existing conservatory will be resealed. Although only a temporary fix, it should keep it weather tight until it is replaced in 2019.
Work has also been completed to resolve the poor state of the road surface and associated drainage from the main entrance to the start of the car park.
Further information on the main project will follow in the new year. I trust this information will help to reassure the membership that your Committee is constantly looking to move outstanding issues forward.
