its aging headquarters, it has been announced this week.

has this week been awarded £2,500 of grant funding from
Sedgemoor District Council.

and maintenance. We have water leaking through the roof and ceilings
and have also suffered vandalism recently."

to improve security and insulation.

funding boost was decided during Tuesday's meeting of the Sedgemoor
District Council Grants Panel following an application from the
club earlier this year.

cartridges and five firing points for rifles.
