Raise the Roof and How you Can help us Fundraise for the Future:
The Grand Opening marked the conclusion of Phase One, the refurbishment of the Hall, and we hope soon the commencement of Phase Two.
We have developed the detail of the plans and full specifications which will go out for tender for accompanying grant applications. But sadly due to present funding constraints for inside developments because of Covid – 19, these plans are to be temporarily put on hold. However, we are optimistic that with a proven track record of success in achieving Phase One we will be able to demonstrate competence and momentum and attract support. We will keep you up to date with these plans as 2021 continues.
Take a look are our plans below. Presently the building looks a bit weird – half modern, half not so modern.
Please take a look at the architect drawing for Phase Two – Proposed Floor Plan
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 the cricket 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. At the same time the ladies and gents toilets will have a makeover, bringing the building into the twenty first century.
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.
