The top and middle floor of the club recently had a full electrical rewire, plus a partial rewire of the ground floor. Together with the new central heating system installed last year, this constitutes major improvements to the building costing in excess of £25,000.
This work could not have been done without the commitment and support of our members, together with the on-going excellent support given to the club by the volunteers at Bolton Unemployed Centre and the work they do on our behalf at music festivals around the country. Our thanks to them, and to everyone who has helped.
