Our modest clubhouse is only accessible when members are on site. Besides being a place to change and leave belongings, we have a small library and basic kitchen facilities. Club members will endeavour to keep water containers topped up, but members and guests should expect to be self-sufficient and bring their own supplies including fuel for cooking. If the weather is poor (which rarely happens!?) the clubhouse provides shelter and has soft furnishings, but it may not be used for “camping”. We have no mains electric, water or gas but there is a chemical toilet. Better facilities are available for cafe patrons at the nearby RSPB site (no admission charge for use of the cafe but there is a charge for admission to the nature reserve; if you use the facilities please consider making a purchase)
Recent improvements to the clubhouse have included:
Aug/Sep 2019 – Although the fascias had been replaced in 2015, the plywood turned not to be marine ply and it very quickly delaminated. So we’ve tried again, this time with high quality marine ply, treated with preservative then 2 undercoats and 3 coats of Dulux Weathersfield. Time will tell if it has worked!
July 2015 – All the decking was replaced and is looking great now, thanks Ivor and the team. The club house had a make over thanks to Joanne and team.
The fascia boards were completed and social housing was installed for the blue tits and other small birds. The open day was a success with Joanne doing most of the tea and coffee making.
May 2015 – New shed floor replaced, new clubhouse fascia boards being erected but unfortunately could not be completed as we have a blue tit’s nest in the roof space, Started on new decking for the veranda. Peter and Bruce have been busy tidying up the site and removing all rubbish.
July 2014 -steps erected at the club house from material sourced from your wood.
June 2014- Replacement of the handrail around the veranda
October 2103- New club house roof.
