The club now has a new waterproof roof on the extension at the rear of the building, where rain and damp has been a constant problem. We’ve also had to have one of the walls re-pointed.

In total it’s cost us over £7,000 — four thousand of which we had in our funds and the remainder raised from several very generous members who loaned the money on a no-interest, one-year basis.

Over the next twelve months the club has to repay these loans so we’re appealing to all members and supporters to donate whatever you can towards the cost. No donation too small.

We own a very old but very important building and maintenance is a constant problem, with keeping the rain out paramount.

Please give what you can. Cheques made payable to Bolton Socialist Club.
