Main Hall Reopened for Bookings
As many of you will be all too aware our Main Hall has been out of use due to the damage we sustained to the roof covering as a result of storm Doris. The temporary protection was put in place very quickly after the storm saving a significant amount of internal damage and we are grateful for the speed and professionalism of EBL Group Ltd in their response. However we are still getting some water ingress and consequential remedial work will be required. Following a visit and report from their loss adjuster we reached an agreement with our insurers to proceed with permanent repairs. Careful consideration has been given to the most suitable technical solution taking into account current building regulations, energy efficiency and service life.
The installation of a new steel sheeted roof covering began on
28th March. The installation work was subject to a number of
factors, not least the weather, and it was anticipated the work
would take 2-3 weeks. The external work reached the stage where it
was watertight by the 7th April and following this the internal
electrical installations were tested and certified safe. We were
then in a position to reopen the main hall for use by the evening of
the 12th April. Other remedial work to the acoustic wall cladding
and ceiling tiles can now be planned accordingly.
We would apologise to everyone who has been inconvenienced by the hall being out of use and thank you for the understanding shown. A number of groups and individuals have even expressed their wish to contribute to the Doris Repair Fund that has been set up to help cover the uninsured elements of our costs. We are doing all we can to get the situation back to normal and appreciate the help that you give.

The Centre is run by the Frodsham Community Association, and is governed by the FCA council made up of representatives of affiliated groups. We are a registered charity run by local residents.
