FIXTURES and fittings from Spalding’s British Sugar Social Club – including snooker and pool tables – go under the hammer at the club on Saturday, May 26.

The club held two swansong events, a dance and a nostalgia day, but the club’s general committee chairman Tony Harper said they were poorly attended

He said: “The nostalgia day was a bit of a damp squib.

“We didn’t have that many people turn out for it. There were probably about 40 people at most.”

A sequence dance the night before saw just 60-70 people attending.

Mr Harper said: “It wasn’t the final bash that we envisaged really.”
