Bogus claims to revive former Ulverston nightclub exposed
Published at 16:36, Tuesday, 18 February 2014
A SOCIAL media account, which posted claims that a businessman was planning to revive a once-popular South Lakes nightspot, has been exposed as a fake.
An anonymous person, posing as former Bar 6 owner Andy Steele on Facebook, spread rumours that he was planning to reopen Buffers nightclub in Station Approach, Ulverston. However, Mr Steele denies he has any plans to reopen the venue and has no connection to the account which claims Buffers could become “Cumbria’s version of the Hacienda”.
The club has been closed since May 2008. Before then, numerous attempts were made to shut the club down after complaints about noise and anti-social behaviour from local residents.
Opened in the early 80s, the former railway station building was a popular destination for clubbers across south Cumbria and beyond and was played the latest house and trance music.
