Not a bad time to construct a roof whilst fans won’t be allowed in the ground for a while, one small positive of this

Probably very much the wrong time for this one , but when the roof is constructed could large national advertising hoardings like raiders have be placed on it to bring more coin in for the club on the outside facing the road , could be a dead in the water idea but something that popped into blank space in my mind during this borderm!

Went past Craven Park today and most of the adverts have gone. Probably not worth the firms spending now that nobody can buy their products.

They are doing their tribute to the NHS where the adverts would be
Eventually the NHS tribute will be moving into the ground and they’ll be selling the advert space on those hoardings

Planning permission is in to replace those boards outside Craven Park with digital display screens.

A quick thank you to Middleton Nick & his good lady (yesterday’s raffle winners) who have very kindly donated some of their winnings to our kitty.

Thanks Nick, it really is greatly appreciated by everyone, including the club. Every penny donated saves the club having to spend their cash on the smaller things that need looking after throughout the year...paint, upgrading various areas of the main building, lighting etc.
We didn't underestimate them, we just didn't think they were that good.

I had to pop down yesterday so I took the opportunity to take these of the ongoing work.

The HSE/pop side corner.

This is where the wall that was there previously used to funnel everyone into a narrow exit gate.

Couldn’t get inside the fanzone as the builders were busy in there but it’s now a watertight building and the interior seems well on the way to being finished.

Good progress there Ian.
The work at the HS/Pop side corner, is that just to tidy up or in order for other work to be done?

I know at one point it was mentioned as being a “pinch point” in case of an emergency in the ground Neil, I’m going back to the Casson era when we were asked to take it down - we obviously never got around to it for one reason or another.
I believe areas like that all add up to the ground capacity being increased (or reduced if not addressed)
