Group fights to get club reopened

A CONSORTIUM is launching a campaign to reopen a popular social club.

Windmill Club in Rushden had more than 1,000 members and its history dated back 114 years before its closure in October.

Just a couple of years before it closed it was refurbished and a Facebook page about the club has more than 1,700 fans.

Its supporters are now hoping to get a business to reopen the club by showing how much support there is for it in the area.

They will launch their campaign with a photoshoot outside the club in Glassbrook Road at 1pm on Saturday, June 9. To support them go along on the day.
