Red Lion Quarter bail out backed

Have your say

COUNCILLORS decided to back plans to bail out the struggling Red Lion Quarter in Spalding - but were adamant that the cost will not reach £300,000 to £400,000 as feared.

South Holland District Council’s cabinet met last night and, under the eye of a packed public gallery, discussed the plan to clear the debts of the centre.

Members also agreed that the failing food court should shut, and did not set a date for it to re-open.

The cabinet made recommendations that will now have to be approved by the full council next Wednesday.
