New Premises - Progress Report
New Premises - Progress Report

Stuart, chairman of the Trustees showing some of the members who attended the AGM, what the new club premises looked like at this stage.

On 24th December 2020 the Trustees completed on a contract for the sale and leaseback of Holgate Road, a 199 year lease on our new clubhouse with Acomb Sports Club, and a contract with EK Build Ltd to build our new purpose-built premises. Building working commenced in early January,

Delays in the supply chain for building materials means that we are still unable to complete the installation of windows and doors. As a result, we do not currently have a date for the completion of the build. Whilst we wait, online and face to face sessions continue. Whilst we understand that some members may still be cautious playing face to face and have been waiting for the new premises to open, we would like to encourage more of you to come back to play bridge at Holgate Road until the new premises open. .
