botanic gardens sports and social club By botanic gardens sports and social club

We need help to re-roof our clubhouse.. Once the roofwork is done, the electricals and refurbishment of the club will follow. Nothing can proceed without roof replacement.

Southport Delivery stage

pledged of £19,789

Sorry this project was unsuccessful, we did not reach our fundraising goal.

The club caters for leisure activities for any persons in the area.
It occupies a prime spot by the bowling greens in the Botanic Gardens,Southport.
We not only have our own snooker and bowling competitions but ,importantly, host the five Probus parks bowls teams. Additionally we have trained members who coach youngsters in bowls. The club is also open for bridge, darts and other social activities.
As full access cannot be gained due to the roof's condition,our activities are severely curtailed and unless funding is successful we will not be able provide the foregoing facilities to the community.and the club will close.

What we'll deliver:

  • redecorating will be necessary
  • The electrical installation will require updating
  • The project firstly will be to have the roof replaced
  • It is proposed to replace floor coverings and replace worn furnishings

Why it's a great idea:

Funding will enable the club to reopen fully, not just for existing members who have been loyal to the club but will undoubtfully attract new members. Additionally we will be able to continue encouraging youngsters who we hope will be future members and of course host other teams who would have difficulty finding other facilities.
T o fully reopen the club means we could continue to provide competitions,entertainment and socials.It would also enhance the general area of the park.

Steps to get it done:

  • furniture ect. will be sought from reasonably priced sources.
  • Local building contractors will be employed as approved by the local authority for main work

The club wish to complete the project in time for the start of the bowling season in march 2015.

Due to cuts the local authiority will not provide funding but were persuaded to shore up the roof for limited access.

We have 10 year lease dated April 2014 from the local authority with option for renewal.
