After months of fundraising, members of Woodhall Spa’s Jubilee Park Bowling Club decided to use their own people power to finish the job of building their much needed new clubhouse. They can now afford a £30,000 prefabricated building to provide larger premises, with its own kitchen and disabled toilets, but that’s just for starters.
To avoid further costs club members have been out on the site in the park with diggers and tools preparing the foundations for the building, having cleared the site themselves and taken down the old clubhouse – all under their own steam.
“We desperately needed a new clubhouse as the old one was falling down. We explored many funding options last year, but due to the funding cuts everywhere we decided it was not going to happen. So we decided to fundraise ourselves and we’ve been doing it like mad, selling jam and chutney, books and everything we can think of. We’ve had full planning permission for the new clubhouse from East Lindsey District Council.”
When the new prefabricated timber building arrives it will be assembled by its suppliers, and then club members will do the painting and decorating. The aim is to have new building up and running by November.
