MAINTAINING THE BUILDING
The Forth Bridge may be sorted for the next 20 years but sadly the same can’t be said of 16 Wood Street. A dangerous chimney has to be demolished. Rebuilding and re-pointing of the rear wall is needed, together with new window frames to replace rotting ones. Total cost around £9000
Our survival thus far is due almost entirely to the generosity of members. So a big thank you to all who have helped. Support is still needed, however. If you are able to make a donation or, better still, to
take out a standing order, however small, it will be of enormous help in the struggle to maintain our unique
and historic club.
