The club is run by a team of dedicated volunteers and relies on sponsorship from local businesses, along with numerous fundraising events from match day raffles, along with the year round fundraising of the volunteers which covers the usual raffles, sportman’s evenings, grants, gifts and donations of people’s time. We are in need of assistance to renovate some of our facilities, some are over 50 years old!
The club during each close season has several maintenance activities and projects which require to be completed, but these have to be prioritised due to funds and resources.
Any assistance for the projects for the 2018 would be much appreciated, they are as follows
Renovate the clubhouse
The clubhouse is a single storey facility that provides the main changing, toilets, bar, catering & communal area. Unfortunately, the building was damaged by floods a couple of years ago and requires an amount of remedial work covering the following
• redecorating due to mould on the bar area ceiling.
• replacement flooring due to water damage,
• both team changing rooms have mould on the walls & ceiling, this will require sanding back & repainting
• the gents toilet floor needs replacing with non-slip vinyl as the current tiles are a slip hazard when they get wet.
• the referees changing room requires a total revamp as its very dilapidated.
• The external fascia needs repairing due to storm damage.
• the roof needs several minor repairs which allow water ingress in several areas.
For all the above internal elements 18mm plywood floor decking, for referees room requires waterproof wall boards & trims and for the other areas specialist paint are required along with the associated tools, sandpaper & chemicals etc. For the external fascia & roof work typical materials are plastic fascia board, softwood timber, associated fixings & tools, along with exterior paints & roof sealants.
External toilets/store room
A portacabin is used to provide some external storage for the junior football club along with toilets for use on match day and by the junior teams. Unfortunately, the floor needs replacing as the timber is rotten and has several holes. The floor is dangerous and requires immediate action. The toilet requires repair to the cubicles and a deep clean to get them back to a more suitable condition. The external needs painting along with the fence around the entrance / portacabin.
Materials which we require are 18mm plywood decking & fixings for the portacabin floor and for the toilet repairs toilet cubicle type boards and associated fixing kits. Paint for the external walls & fence around the portacabin.
External Catering facility
The club requires a small external building to cater for match day supporters. The current clubhouse is not big enough on match day and consequently the club cannot provide the required volume of refreshments, additionally the club is losing out on potential revenue. The proposed building is a 20 foot by 10 foot single storey facility which would have a serving hatch. The proposed location is on an area which must be fenced off as this area is deemed unsafe for the public to use.
Materials required for this building are Celcon building blocks, cement, sand, timber joists, roof boarding & sheet materials. External faced outward opening door, two windows, large serving hatch. Electrical mains board, wiring sockets & associated trunking/conduit.
Health & safety improvements
The club was developed over several years & hence the facility has several issues which need to be addressed as they are health & safety concerns, these being
1) Trip hazards by the pitch perimeter hard standing.
2) Improvements to perimeter lighting
3) Improvements to the media tower used on match day by reporters.
4) Improvements in emergency signage
5) Improvements to access and egress.
Covered standing areas
The club is short of covered standing areas around the pitch. We need to put down the hard standing for these & require 250m3 of concrete
