New Disabled Access/Facilities and Lift now operational!

Greendale Construction handed over the Disabled Access Project on time on Friday 5th July. The lift is now in operation and the disabled toilet with baby changing is open.

Please see the following information which we hope will assist you in using the new facilities:

To enter the automatic entrance doors, use your existing fob and touch the fob against the black pad below the intercom buttons on the wall to the right of the doors. To exit brush your hand over the red button on the wall to the left of the doors, this will turn green and the doors will open.

The new clubroom doors push open to enter and pull to exit as before. If a wheelchair requires entry, press the button on the left hand side of the door and both doors will automatically open. To exit push the button on the white frame to the left of the doors and both doors will open.

To operate the lift between floors, press the call button, when the lift arrives select the desired floor. To get to the clubroom level press and hold button 1 until the floor is reached. For the toilet and baby changing, press and hold button 2 until the floor is reached. On exiting at level 2 the door to the toilet is on the right. For the ground floor press and hold button G until ground level is reached.

A new access ramp to the front entrance will be built starting week commencing 15th July. This is expected to take 3 days.

The 6 existing winners boards are being remodeled and will be fitted in the next few weeks. A new Commodores board in light oak will also be installed.

As the project has now been completed we would like to thank all members for their support and co-operation during the build and trust that you will benefit from the from the new club entrance, staircase, lift, disabled toilet and meeting room for many years to come.
