The club on the corner of Wind Street and High Street shut suddenly in August 2021 having been around since the 1960s.

At the time of the shock closure, the club’s committee wrote: “It is with great sadness that we must announce our closing, effective immediately.

“The committee, management and staff would like to take the opportunity to thank all of our members and customers for the support shown over the years.”

Now, plans have been revealed to demolish the 1960s building opposite the new leisure centre and replace it with a modern-design apartment complex.

The 4 storey building will house a mix of 1 and 2 bed private accessible flats with cycle storage, refuse storage and communal amenity areas.

Each ground floor unit will have its own private entrance and garden area, whilst upper floor units will all benefit from a balcony.

The modern residential development is described as providing “a contrast between the existing residential dwellings and adjacent commercial developments” in planning documents.

While there is no car parking planned, the application states “the development would contribute to the ongoing regeneration and economy of the area and town and would provide a highly sustainable form of accommodation without the need for reliance on car based transport.”

    All very well and good. But our social event(Skittles)was taken away from us,with no compensation for the loyal members. It was disgusting how it was done,and how the members didn’t really have any say on the matter. Very underhanded I afraid.
