Booth Charities fund gym restoration

Scaffolding went up this week to start the final stage of the restoration and improvements to the main sports gym. Last summer the outside of the gym roof was re-slated and this summer we are restoring the interior. The work will be complete by early September. The project has been funded by a grant from The Booth Charities.

Thieves Stop Restoration Work

We started work last week to make the roof of the concert hall and boxing gym watertight, using some of the £250,000 that we have raised as part of our £1,000,000 appeal.

Unfortunately thieves got there before us and overnight they removed 2 long channels of lead from both sides of the main gym roof. Coupled with the weather last week, this was a catastrophe. We now have a double bill to pay, first for the clear up and then for the security which we now need for the next month while the roof is being restored.
