It has been reported that today is the day that Newchapel Club has closed down. The Club which was known in its later years at The Club at Newchapel and for many years Newchapel Working Mens Club has been struggling for many years, mainly as a result of changing consumer habits. The previous owner purchased the site for a reported £250,000 and ran the business under its new name. It appears though that this was not enough to save the club and today it has been boarded up and the for sale signed placed outside.
Clearly this is a sad day for Newchapel Club and residents are naturally concerned about the anti social behaviour this may now attract.
