The future of the popular GF Sports and Social Club may be out of members’ hands if developers of a planned shopping extension win use of a compulsory purchase order.
The club committee has vowed to fight such a move ‘as far as we can’. Chairman Rob Marshall said: “The only alternative place they’ve offered is a three-storey building with underground parking on Chamberlaine Court car park. With live music events that’s no good at all, next to a block of flats for elderly people.
“Chamberlaine Court is dead against it. There’s nowhere for us to go. We wouldn’t exist if we were located out of town.”
