It’s weekends like the one we just had make us wish that we could use the roof and our courtyard. Well, we can I suppose, but we can’t allow public use. We are often asked why we don’t open the roof as part of the club but it is not as suitable as it may appear from the road. It would need a great deal of work, in its current form could be unsafe and in fact, the views are not great. We are also asked a lot why we don’t utilise the courtyard as a smoking area to prevent people having to stand on the high street. Unfortunately, although it was always our intention and the preference of the police officer when he inspected, it is against our current planning permission. But a very nice summer staff room it will be…very soon.
