Replacement window specialist SEH BAC has started work on improvements at the West Cliff Theatre in Clacton-on-Sea, the winner of a £10,000 Community Giveaway competition run by the firm to help a deserving community project.
SEH BAC, which is part of Ipswich-based One Group Construction, is replacing the existing windows and doors at the theatre with modern, energy efficient alternatives which will considerably reduce its annual running costs.
The theatre, which was founded in 1894 and is largely run by volunteers, welcomes around 35,000 visitors a year but is badly in need of renovation.
“It’s great to see our installers arrive at the West Cliff Theatre to begin the important work of ensuring this much-loved staple of the Clacton community can continue to operate for generations to come,” said John Savage, SEH BAC managing director.
“The Community Giveaway was launched to commemorate our 45-years of trading across the South-East and to recognise a community building that was in desperate need of our help.
“Buildings like this are truly important to the local area and to our customers, so we are absolutely delighted that we can give the West Cliff Theatre a new lease of life. We can’t wait to see the result!”
SEH BAC has have 17 show centres across the South-East, East Anglia and the Home Counties, with more planned in the near future.
