Bar renovations on track with Government roadmap

Herewith a sneak preview of the fantastic work that has been going on behind the scenes at the Community Centre during this hopefully last ever lockdown.

The committee decided that with help from grants etc, to carry out major renovation work of the bar area, which will be finished before inviting members and their guests back indoors from May 17th.

There has been a number of very welcome changes and the bar area has undergone some alterations to the layout, making use of a previous infrequently used children’s room since the extension in 2014, into a much larger and more desirable open planned lounge space. In addition the ceiling and wall lighting system has been completely updated creating a more comfortable and ambient feel throughout, not forgetting an equally impressive colour change.

IRCA Chairman Colin Cross said “Our gratitude must go to the team who have carried out the work, they have spent many hours of effort mainly at weekends transforming the bar area and we hope everyone is delighted with the results. All of this work has been carried out by volunteers from our membership, we are looking forward to seeing you all very soon.”

Please remember that the Beer Garden is open from April 12th – 2pm till 8pm every day. Last orders will be called at 7.30pm.
