The new windows in the side lounge were completed this week, with all the structural metalwork being encased.
Floor repair, sanding and re-sealing is completed.
Some of the windows were taken out to be replaced, but it was then discovered that the old windows had been supporting the ceiling. The news ones did not have any integral support in them which necessitated calling in a structural surveyor to provide guidance and calculations for the remedial work.
We send out a Press Release, announcing our successful bid.
We forward all the necessary documentation for due diligence, which is a pre-requisite of the Award.
We hear that we have been successful in our application to Awards4All and we get a conditional Grant of £10,000 towards repair, sanding and resealing of our Community Centre floor and Side Lounge Windows replacement and Blackout Blinds. Press embargo until 2nd October, 2012 so we can't tell anyone.
We submit an Application to Awards4All for £10,000 towards refurbishment in the Community Centre & Side Lounge (Replacement windows & Fire Exit Doors, Projector, Projection Screen, Conference Tables, Blackout Blinds, Floor sanding & re-sealing). Total cost estimated to be £18,500. Match funding provided by Debenham Parish Council (£2,000), Eddy Alcock Locality Budget (£1,000) and the difference being made up from donations (ie Conference tables donated by SCC).
