Raise the Roof Phase Two

‘Raise the Roof’ and how you can help us fundraise for the future:

The Bubwith Daily Mile (three times round is one mile!) is now complete and paid for, great LED lighting around the whole track. The track was a great success for the 2023 Santa Run! The refurbished footbridge at the far end – over the South Wood Drain is now completed, ensuring a safe pedestrian access way over the South Wood Drain. Funding has been successfully granted for refurbishment of the terrace area outside the southern side of the centre as Planning has already been passed. Details of this will become clear in Spring 2024. We are also looking to update the decoration and flooring of the bar / lounge area leading to this terraced area.

For the past 18 months a hardworking group of volunteers have been working on a newly positioned play park for the children. This will be situated adjacent to the playing field. If you would like to join this group, please contact us. We will keep you up to date with these plans as 2024 progresses .

The plan for Phase Two is literally to Raise the Roof by about one and a half metres, so that it matches the higher hall roof. The existing will be craned up, the stanchions extended, then replaced, and new insulation and cladding installed to match the hall. This will have the effect of tripling the floor area upstairs, allowing installation of windows overlooking the tennis courts, playground and football fields, construction of a dedicated suite for small children, a large meeting room, a small studio for private treatments, instruction or consultations, a large function room for group classes such as fitness activities, and storage. Access will be via a new lift so all members of the community can be included.

Lots happening at the BLSC.

All this will cost a great deal, and you can help us directly if you would be so kind, through our Easy Fundraising or The Giving Machine  online donation link.
