Future of Barrow social club uncertain

A BARROW social club is facing an uncertain future due to unspecified “problems”.
Members of the Engineers Club in Abbey Road, Barrow, were due to attend an emergency general meeting last night.
Concert secretary David Took said he could not disclose any specific information before members were briefed at the EGM.
But he said it was safe to say last Saturday would, at the very least, be the “last night for a while”.
While unable to go into much detail, Mr Took said the issue was not related to finances.
Mr Took said: “We’re having a meeting to explain to the members what’s happened and what we’re trying to propose to do.
“Let’s just say it was the last night for a while until we sort out the problems.”
The KillOne Club, based in Duke Street, Barrow, used its Facebook account on Sunday to say that it was a shame to see “another good club close its doors” and that all Engineers Club members were welcome to go to the KillOne in the future.
The Engineers Club held numerous crunch meetings in 2012, firstly in April of that year when it owed around £6,000 in VAT.
More meetings were called in November 2012 when the then secretary resigned and the club was in talks with Barrow Borough Council to change its club premises certificate to a premises licence.
The club had appeared to stabilise in the past year and hosted events over the Christmas period.
