MEMBERS of a working men's club in Athersley North that closed two months ago have been told it will re-open on May 10.

Mansfield Road-based Athersley Social WMC closed amid financial problems, but will re-open as a social club.

A license has been applied for by Gerald Hart, a regional sales manager for Sam Smith's Brewery, but there would be no provision of live music, dance or entertainment such as live sporting events shown on TV.

One club member believes there will still be snooker and pool, but the bandit jackpot will be reduced to £75 from £250.
