Harnham Sports Club re-opens after fire

Published by Faye Tryhorn at 6:00am 19th July 2019.

The building's been closed since May following a blaze in the roof of the main club.

A huge clean-up operation's been completed at the Parsonage Green site, as much of it was affected by smoke.

The carpets and chairs have been fully cleaned to allow that side to re-open.

The main part of the Harnham Sports and Social Club is ready to re-open

The main club will be available to members from today (Friday July 19th), but the function room will remain shut until December.

That's so the roof, which was most affected by fire, can be fixed.

The committee's said they're pleased to be back:

"We are now in a position to re-open our main club area. We hope to welcome as many of our members old and new back."

They've also thanked all the local members who have been helping with the work to re-open the club, saying 'without them it would not have been possible'.
