As you will have seen when travelling through Mount, the Reading Room after over 100 years serving the community is being almost rebuilt to ensure its future. Rob and his team of volunteers have been doing a splendid job in removing the old wooden floor and re-laying in concrete and are progressing with recladding the walls both internally and externally. Time has to be allowed for the floor to dry out but by the end of 2022 works should be completed and the Room available to anyone who wants to use it subject to a
nominal annual subscription.
Although the name “Reading Room” has been retained the main activities mainly comprise the Snooker Table and Dart Board. However, the Room will also be available for the
use of small groups during the daytime.
A new era for the snooker-reading room in Mount was agreed at the meeting held on Thursday 30 June 2022 where the future of this historic building was discussed. There was standing room only at the meeting, and it was agreed that we should bring the building back to life.
£5 per year membership, and £1 per person per session to play either Snooker or Darts. For info, call Richard on his mobile – 07717 691720.
