The Barn Project

Above is a picture of the Club yard taken in April 2010. As you can readily see we have a Barn. The Barn is in slightly less than perfect condition but that's all about to change...

This years project is to rebuild and extend the barn into a modern and usable building for the club.

In early February 2012 Bob held a number of meetings to outline and kick start the rebuild.

Please revisit this page often, I will try to provide updates and photographs of the project as it progresses.

The start of the project

Here is the Barn at the start of October 2014. It really is the same building. The doors are about to be fitted and one wall still needs some work. We are keen to finish this segment before winter however, what we desperately need now is some form of Insulation Material for the Roof and Walls.

 

If you or your Company can help with Materials or Money then please contact Bob, or drop a message to the Secretary via the "Contact Us" page.

2014 is here and much work has already been done. Here are a few shots taken in March and April 2014. The images do not do justice to what is becoming a very large and usable space.

 July and August, no let up With thanks to Robin and John Wright for their generosity and with the help and support of the rest of the Concreting Team we were able to complete a significant milestone in the Barn rebuild on 17th May 2014. Have a look at the slideshow or video for a sample of how the day went.
