We are pleased to announce that we have signed the formal contract for the Watchet Bowling Club new build with our principal contractor at the end of November. We have also instructed on the demolition of the old garages in order to facilitate the new build. Demolition will commence this month December 2020 and the new build is scheduled to start at the end of January 2021. We are sharing an artist impression of the new building which will include a new bar, lounges, a kitchen, and a function room that can cater for 100 people. We hope to create a great asset for Watchet, and the function room in particular, will be a truly valuable facility for our community. Thanks Ron
New Build - Demolition of the Garages We have been made aware of noise issues primarily caused by the doors of the old garages that are being demolished at the WBC. The area is a demolition site and as such we are limited in what can be done, we cannot for example remove the doors ourselves (indeed even if we could that would encourage further illegal dumping of rubbish which we’ve already had to deal with). The workers from the demolition company, like the rest of us are currently on Christmas break. That said two of our members attended on Christmas Eve and wedged the garage doors to address. The situation has been exacerbated by Storm Bella and the accompanying 80 mph winds. However once again our members and a resident are in attendance with the intention of securing the doors in a better way. We of course apologise for the inconvenience caused to those affected and ask for your understanding and patience whilst this is resolved. Watchet Bowling Club Chair
