Work to fix Legion roof

WORK has started on the Royal British Legion building in Brassington.

The £42,000 project got underway with contractors replacing the Meadow Rise building’s roof, which over the past seven years has sprung leaks and caused extensive damp.

More than £27,140 came from fundraisers and grants, but £15,000 is still needed.

There are hopes of having the roof finished by Christmas if the additional funds can be found, and have the club open again by February.
