MEMBERS of a working men's club which closed suddenly under a dark financial cloud say they're saddened and angry by the lack of answers from the committee about what happened.

The Athersley Social WMC members said they have 'questions that need answering' after it shut without warning a couple of weeks ago.

The Mansfield Road club continued to trade and take payment from members despite knowing bailiffs were coming in the following day.

Many members have blamed the committee for the closure, claiming it had been 'poorly run'.

A meeting was supposed to be held on Tuesday to discuss the club's future and members' feelings after closure - but it was cancelled.

The club's committee said the meeting that was supposed to be held on Tuesday was cancelled due to circumstances beyond its control.

A spokesman for the committee, said: "We've been informed by Sam Smith's Brewery that a meeting can be held at our own convenience when the club is reopened."
