Club officials will meet soon with the city council’s Development Christchurch Ltd. DCL is holding $1 million for the rebuild of the clubrooms. The money was approved by the city council recently in the annual plan. Once DCL is happy with where the $1 million will be used and how it will be spent, it will release the funds for the rebuild. The club needs to raise between $750,000 to $1 million for the rebuild which could cost up to $3 million. Club president James Gaskell (above) said the money would be a huge boost for the club, and its ambitions of rebuilding their broken clubhouse. “It’s quite a big bit of money for us, insurance didn’t favour us too much in looking at the clubhouse . . . so it’s something we’re heavily dependent on,” he said. He said the club had already raised just under a third of the anticipated cost. “With what the club has in the bank at the moment, we’d be just under a third. “If we get this council funding, it will cover a third, and we’re now looking for a final third . . . I would say we’re looking at between $2.5 to $3 million, for the whole project,” he said. Mr Gaskell said the club is now looking at preparing a feasibility report by August. The club will send the report to the Lotteries Commission, to “enhance the chances of securing” the extra funding needed to progress the project. The club is also asking local businesses, not-for-profit organisations, club members and residents in the area to put forward their ideas on why the club is important to New Brighton. “We know it’s really needed in our eyes, but it’s also about having that need backed up by the community . . . we want to build something great for the community,” he said. Mr Gaskell asked anyone with supporting or relevant information that will help the club’s rebuild to email BIG BOOST: The New Brighton Surf Lifesaving Club may receive $1 million from the city council to go towards a new clubhouse.
