At Belper Meadows Community Sports Club, we encourage everyone to participate and enjoy the benefits this site has to offer. To this end, we are striving to provide better facilities for everyone using our Club.
As you may be aware, our current wooden pavilion is over 100 years old and literally rotting away.
We have exciting plans for a replacement, hopefully this summer, which will provide new changing facilities, toilets, clubroom and disabled access in a building adjacent to the bowls, tennis and hockey playing surfaces BUT we need help with extra funds to complete this. With our limited resources the most cost efficient and least disruptive build will take place in two phases. Phase 1 will be to construct a two storey shell and fit out the lower storey for immediate use. Phase 2 will be to fit out the upper storey as and when funds become available. This method uses the least Capital and avoids bringing back the heavy construction plant.
We have been able to build up around 80% of the funds we need ourselves, but we need to raise another £50,000 to complete Phase 1. A further £70,000 would enable us to complete the fitting out of the upper storey to create the facility we would like to provide for our members (Phase 2).
This new building forms the first stage in a list of upgrading works planned at BMSC over the next few years including reworking and renovating the upper brick Pavilion to make it fit for purpose.
We are asking members to help us in this FUNDRAISING QUEST.
We have applied to several organisations for grants but have, as yet, been unsuccessful due to the amount of competition out there. We therefore need to ask members to dig deep and help with fundraising suggestions and efforts to enable this to happen.
PLEASE, PLEASE help us to achieve a comfortable, 21st century environment to help everyone, supporters, visitors and players alike, to enjoy everything BMSC has to offer.
We would like to hear from you if you can help with anything from DONATIONS and SPONSORSHIP to FUNDRAISING IDEAS and events.
We want to make this happen for YOU, for the future of BMSC.
