Barnstaple Pilot Gig Club to make new Boathouse available as a “Warm Space”
Barnstaple Pilot Gig Club (BPGC) are to make the heated meeting room in their new Boathouse available as a warm space for local residents who may not be able to afford to heat their own homes properly during the current economic crisis. The premises on Rolle’s Quay, Barnstaple has underfloor heating, a kitchen, accessible toilet and a meeting room large enough for up to 60 people, and will be open from 2.00pm to 4.00pm every Wednesday and Monday from Wednesday 4th January until Wednesday 29th March. Club members will be in attendance, ingredients will be available for visitors to make hot drinks, and tins of soup available for heating up, all free of charge.
In addition, free Wi-fi is available as well as charging facilities for mobile phones, and a large-screen TV that visitors will be able to watch.
BPGC is indebted to North Devon Council for the provision of a financial grant towards the cost of making this warm space available.
