2 great pictures sent in to the Facebook group. Mother and daughter employees celebrating 30 years of bingo in the building. Can’t have been much longer after this was taken that the place was closed as there was only 32 years between the last film being shown and the doors closing for good!
Spin around 180 degrees and cross 4 lanes of traffic and you have this. Proof that that community spaces are needed and can be reclaimed given the right expertise and motivation. Enough said. Read all about it here.
This video was accidentally set to private by its owner some time ago. It’s now back in the public domain. It’s the last known images taken inside the place during the pre auction viewing in the late 90s. Since then not a single picture exists!
Problem is this article is factually incorrect, the owner is not CTIL. They are a telecoms company owned by o2 and Vodafone that lease roof space from the owner. Great that the building is in the paper though. Some really impassioned opposition to the new masts from local residents which should be applauded.
If the article appears online, I’ll upload it here.
