In 1970 the club organised with West Sussex County Council the renting of a convienient piece of spare land behind the Park Centre and built a large wooden shed to help with storage of theatrical props, costumes, preparation of scenery and originally it was also used as a meeting venue. They also secured the use of a half derelict bungalow on the same site and used it for the storage of larger props.
