I believe work on the fanzone has been paused as they have run out of materials.

Took these whilst picking some surgical/rubber gloves up we had in the GMA last week for a care home.

We didn't underestimate them, we just didn't think they were that good.

Thanks for sharing, what’s the latest plan with the Holker St roof which was meant to be done during pre season? Has Covid put an end to that or is it still hoped to be done in time for our arrival in L2?

The latest photos from the Fanzone, doors and windows are now in and work is ongoing (in line with government guidelines).

The roof project is still a go, the structure is being built off site and we'll keep people updated as things progress :scarf:

When we are admitted to league2, would work be started on the new Holker End roof immediately-has planning permission been granted anyone know?.

That's great, thanks.
I just hope the new roof is the same length as the 'old' Holker End. Though it doesn't look to me like it covers the whole of the terracing so as to keep the elements of people stood immediately behind the goals for example.

I don’t think it is as deep as the old roof mall, but even that didn’t keep the rain off people near the front (just behind the wall)
TBF, it’s a roof and it’s better than what we’ve had to put up with for far too long now.

It is planned at 65m width and from the drawing is just short of full width. An extra 5m section at each end would have had it pretty much full cover. I can only think they haven't just gone for that whilst they are in there is that the piling perhaps would have been too close to the exit stairwell at each end of terrace. Same height as Pop side roof so will be great when done.

I'm sure I read or heard that things were on hold due to lockdown etc and that's why roof has not been started, I could be wrong mind, I am slightly delusional these days!! So I'm guessing that planning has been granted but perhaps not updated on site? And I'm sure it is already paid for too but again I could be dreaming about this?

There’s an impression of what it will look like on one of the files lodged with the town hall. (Think it’s the lighting file) from that it looks like it covers up to the first step, with just the wide flat section behind the pitch-side wall uncovered. I’ve got a screenshot on my phone of it but can never fathom how to upload photos on here lol
