I welcome the award of a grant of £5000 to Pool Social Club towards refurbishment of their premises.

I am very pleased that we were able to help Pool Social Club out with the improvements they are making to the premises in order to make it a more attractive venue for the village community. They are looking to modernise a number of areas within the club including refurbishing the wooden floor, modernising the kitchen and bar areas and generally upgrade the decorations and the lighting units.

Pool Social Club is a great asset to the village and with this upgrade they should be able to make it a very attractive place for people to hold functions and community events for a long time to come. I hope this will attract a wider use of the facility all round.
