Area Youth Centre has this week launched a new 'save the roof'
Built in 1966, the youth centre's roof is starting to experience
occasional leaks during heavy rain.
working party has joined the management committee to spend a lot
of time keeping the roof watertight, but the decision has been
taken to get it fully repaired.
"To this purpose, the trustees have elected a sub-committee
to apply for grant funding, with instructions to coordinate repair
of the roof, and keep the BAY centre watertight for many years
to come," BAY Centre Chairwoman Julia Elswood told Burnham-On-Sea.com.
"The project plan is in the initial stage with applications
for major funding having been submitted, and minor plans to raise
money for the expected balance needed to meet the conditions of
the major grant."
request for support has been circulated amongst local fundraising
support organisations. The Town Council has already pledged £200.
Groups within the BAY Centre will be organising a fundraising
fun day at the centre soon.
