The Club has just been notified that it has been successful in its application to Tavistock Town Council for grant funding towards the new toilet facilities. The Club has been awarded £3,500 from the Council’s 2015/2016 budget. This now brings the Club very close to achieving the goal of £25,000 required to build the toilets and is very grateful for all the support it has received.
The Club has been successful in a bid for Lottery funding towards the construction of new toilet facilities adjoining the Clubhouse extension completed in 2014. The Big Lottery ‘Awards For All’ has today announced a £10,000 grant towards the £25,000 cost of the project. As well as finance from the Club itself, Devon County Council is providing £2,500 and other grant applications are pending.
The Big Lottery Fund is responsible for giving out 40% of the money raised for good causes by the National Lottery.
The Clubhouse is available for private hire at times when it is not being used by the Bowling Club. Further details can be found on the page headed ‘Hire of Clubhouse’ elsewhere on this website.
The next evening social event will be a Race Night to be held on Friday 20 February commencing at 7.30pm in the Clubhouse.
During 2014, the Club’s website has had 3,800 views from 18 countries!
