Salthouse celebrate new facilities
Published at 16:59, Friday, 02 November 2012
THE members of Salthouse Bowling Club are looking flushed after a kind councillor funded plans for a new toilet block.
The 86-year-old club submitted plans for the new facilities last year, but needed more than £10,000 to make them a reality.
After failing to secure money from Cumbria County Council, the club found a benefactor in the shape of Councillor Kevin Hamilton, who stepped in with a grant of nearly £10,500 from his councillor’s local member scheme, a £12,000 pot of money to spend on projects that to benefit their local community.
A new gents toilet and a combined ladies/disabled toilet have now been built, which replaced a wooden toilet block more than 50 years old.
Cllr Hamilton was invited to open the facilities, but a previous engagement prevented him from being present, with Furness and District Bowling League chairman Joe Wardman performing the opening ceremony in his absence.
The new toilets complement a renovated kitchen area and new furniture inside the club, which is also used as a senior citizens club throughout the year.
