In September of last year, a working party was arranged to clean up the Clubhouse window frames check for rot then re-treat with waterproof stain coating in preparation for winter. While carrying out the work it was found that some of the window frames were suffering from extensive rot. It was decided that these windows which were part of the original build back in 1990 would need replacing within the next year. The club secretary applied to Felixstowe Town Council for a grant towards the costs of replacement. The club was awarded £1,500 allowing work to go ahead on the 15th February. We would like to thank the Council for this generous award. We would also like to encourage other Felixstowe clubs to apply for these twice-yearly grant awards.
