Kegworth Bowls Club
Grant Project 2015 - 2016
Our thanks go to Biffa Award for giving Kegworth Bowls Club £10,000 funding towards this project.
Our project is just getting up steam and over the next few months we hope to see the tired old clubhouse re-furbished with some new windows and doors, a new kitchen and the external building repainted. Planned date for completion is the end of March 2016 in time for the start of the new season.
14th December and things are progressing well. kitchen's all out and the old lino is in the bin. Had ideas to re-use some of the kitchen units and tops in other parts of the club, will upload photo's when in new locations. Looks like Santa has come up trumps and we should get the new windows and doors fitted in time for Christmas.
21st December and the Windows and Doors are in and they look great, just need to tidy up some the wiring.
1st January 2016 welcome's in a new year and a fresh feel to the club house. After decorating the kitchen ready for the new units the club room looked sad so Paul and Brenda waved their magic wands (brushes) and transformed the club room from a frog to a prince.
5th January our thanks to Awards for All "Big Lottery" for giving us the funds to fit a new floor in the kitchen, upgrade the electrics and plumbing. install a dishwasher, under sink heater, hot water boiler and two fridges. these will enhance the new fitted kitchen and ensure the electrics and pluming meet current standards.
13th January first fix electrics and plumbing done. New floor laid looks great. two more weeks and the kitchen should be finished. External painting waiting for warmer weather.
28 January Kitchen installed second fix electrics done, hard to remember what the old kitchen looked like glad we took the before photos. ladies are busy putting the crockery back into the cupboards they can't wait to try the dishwasher.
Looking forward to seeing the reaction from the member when they check out the new facilities.
5th February Had some great comments from members who has seen the new kitchen. "that's brilliant" "it's so much brighter" "Wow" "you've done a grand job"
Mon 8th March and were on the home straight the external paining has started.
Tues 15th March and paining is now complete, what a transformation the veranda is bright and white and the external cladding has a smooth even finish. This should help to preserve the building for years to come.
Just need to set up an annual inspection to ensure we keep it maintained. Thanks again to Biffa Award.
Check out the before and after photo's as we progress.
