To the untrained eye this might not look much but yesterday the foundations were not only dug out (for the new Purdham Suite extension) but the foundation concrete was poured as well. On top of this, groundwork was carried out next to the site of the 'prosecco' bar to extend the concrete pad to allow the siting of the new club's catering outlet and a start was made near the end of the board room building to create a car park for the match day officials. A lot of work in one day and a big thanks to all those involved! The office.

Work continues on the new Purdham Suite extension.

As you can all see the footings are now in place as building works yesterday now give more definition to the building. The new lounge will be open for our first 'normal' game in June. If you want to participate in the historic event please contact Tracy in the office on 01946 328088 (remember office hours are limited at the moment  so please ring back or ring 01946 841972) lets make the first proper home game a real humdinger.

More progress in hand on the Purdham Suite extension, the floor slab and drains are set and the builders have started to construct the main walls, things are moving really well. With all this in mind some of us in the office are coming down on Saturday to strip out the old bar and the old kitchen and we could do with two or three volunteers to come down and give a hand. If you think you can spare a few hours give Tracy a ring in the office on 10946 328088. Tracy the office.

The joiners are seen here busy starting to manufacture the connecting floor that will join the new Purdham Suite with the existing J.J. McKeown Bar. Work is progressing very well and don't forget the Batley game and the chance to be in the new building for its historic opening. Phone Tracy on the office number 01946 328088 or Tom on 01946 841972.

The scaffolding is now erected on the New Purdham Suite and the walls now virtually complete. Also an interesting shot from the inside. All coming along quite quickly. The Office.

More progress on the bridge between the two building as the joiner has laid the floor and is now constructing the outside walls. They will be cutting through from the Purdham Suite at the weekend. The old kitchen and bar have now also been removed.
If you wish to book a place for the Batley game please ring the office on 01946 328088

Thank you

Saturday was another busy day down at the Recreation Ground, the trusses have now been put in place and the whole job is taking shape very nicely, the old floor coverings have been removed and 80% of the old ceilings have been pulled down, and both both external walls have been constructed to the connecting bridge between the two bars. Thanks to those volunteers who came down on Saturday to give us a helping hand. Thanks also to 'Ricky from Zest Harbourside' who came down to give us advice on the layout of of our new catering kitchen and catering unit.

Here are an assortment of views of the Purdham suite works, as currently standing. As you can all see the roof is now covered in and felted over, the two gable ends have been taken out and it now is a huge space. The photos also show our antipodean lads getting stuck in and giving the club a hand to clear out all the rubble etc. When you view it now it's clear what a valuable space this will become and remember the Batley game - get your table or seat booked for what will be a great and memorable day. Ring Tracy on 01946 328088. The office.
