Meanwhile, Bowmanville officials, to get its $3.1-million cash gap under control, shuttered the stand which was operated by the municipality. Some guests were “disappointed,” according to Alf Huggins, the president of Darlington Soccer Club.
“Especially on the weekends early in the morning,” he said. They believe they will be served their coffee once they arrive. So, the soccer club put up a proposal to take over the concession stand, and they asked the Municipality for approval.
Mr. Huggins noted that a gap arose once the stand closed.
When it comes to supporting the community, this is far from the first occasion the club has jumped in to help. Half a decade ago, the club pledged $500,000 in cash to assist fund the construction of the facility.
According to Mr. Huggins, we have made roughly half of our total contribution to the construction fund. We are just halfway done with our goal of 5 years hence.
It’s not expected that the club will generate a significant amount of money from the stand, but the chance to sell not just refreshments, but also club merchandise, such as jackets and scarves, is something that should be pursued.
It’s not entirely a novel concept to think of running the concession stand. Clarington, rather than following the design, chose to manage the concession in the building’s early days. Regional Councillor Mary Novak says it’s a terrific fit. She noted that this group conducts a great deal of good work and puts a lot of effort into the physical building.
The Municipality announced that work is expected to begin on March 1, 2017. The renovation process will last for about two months and there is no particular date when it will be reopened. It’s still not clear if Councillor Novak’s idea of handing over the operation of the stand to Darlington Soccer Club will indeed materialize.
