Willingham Social Club

Residents in the village of Willingham, South Cambridgeshire will be glad to hear of a £29,000 project that is now complete, improving the nearby Social Club amenity.

Co-funded by local construction firm Mick George Ltd, the initiative has seen the 40-year old existing boiler room overhauled, replacing the old system with modern, new water tanks and single boiler, as well as an entirely new disabled toilet facility, which includes a baby changing area.

The scheme was considered a ‘matter of urgency’ following concerns raised by some of the regular disabled members of the Club who were experiencing practical and logistical access issues, in and around the site.

Already a hugely popular destination for various social and private functions, hosting more than 28 separate occasions this year, it is envisaged that the recent changes will only further boost the appeal of the facility.

The Club are now formulating plans for more enhancements, with the kitchen servery and play area next to be scrutinised.

John Carey, Chairman of Willingham Social Club said: ‘’The grant has allowed us to provide much more comfortable surroundings for all visitors, making it generally a much more pleasant experience. We’re very grateful to Mick George Ltd for their contribution.’’

Stuart Costello, Marketing Director at Mick George Ltd commented: ‘’We know how important facilities such as these are to local villages and towns, but also recognise there isn’t always the finances available for the required upkeep. We’re glad to have been able to assist through the Community Fund programme.’’
