In the last 12 months we have been endeavouring to obtain external funding for the planned Ladies Toilet/Refreshment room to replace the recently vandalised hut on the 13th Tee.
The good news is that we have finally got the agreement and support to go ahead with this project primarily through the generosity of a member who is kindly lending the club the money to buy the Log Cabin, as shown below and also received some pledges from members 12 months ago which will go towards the septic system and other fixtures & fittings, landscaping etc.
Although every effort has been made to obtain external funding for this project - £30,000, this has proven to be difficult due to the fact that golf is treated as an elitist sport so this financial help (loan) from this member and also the current members pledges received last year has been the reason for being able to move this project forward.
We have also changed the building from a wooden clad shipping container to a Log Cabin because we were hearing from members that they did not like the aesthetics of this purpose built shipping container and why we have gone for the above.
Already we have received pledges of nearly £7,000 from members, however we would like to make a final push to get more pledges from the members as we still have a funding gap to fill.
