People coming to the Feature Film — The Good Liar — on Friday evening at 8.00 pm are being asked to take extra care when approaching the rear door of the Community Centre. Preparatory work in advance of the installation of new gas boilers has left a deep trench near the oil store and boiler room. Though the area is well lit, film-goers are asked to approach the area with a degree of caution.
Vice-Chair Sue Hardacre explained "Cheshire West and Chester Council have decided to renew the oil boilers with more efficient gas ones, a decision which delighted the Committee. Groundwork commenced quickly but there has been a delay in getting the Contactor's schedule and the Gas Board schedule to align. We now believe that the work will take place at the beginning of February."
Control of the work is completely outside that of the Committee though they have kept regular contact with all concerned to get the work completed as soon as possible. The delay has removed a small number of car parking spaces from use at a time when the Centre has been exceptionally busy. The Committee will also hold the Contractors to their promise to provide extra space heaters for the 2/3 days that the installation and change over will take.
The Committee has also asked CW&C to look at a number of other issues, in particular the roof, which are also in need of some attention. The Committee has an ambitious wish list of improvements it wants to carry out, and hopes that, working with their Council landlord, they can continue to offer a space that meets the needs of residents in the future.
