Eccleston Social Club faces axe
A LONG standing social club will be axed later this year, Pilkington Ltd confirmed today.
The Eccleston Social Club, on Knowsley Road, more commonly known as Triplex, has been a popular venue down the decades, hosting countless wedding and birthday parties.
It is owned by Ruskin Leisure Ltd, a subsidiary of the glassmaker, and the closure will cut another of the few remaining recreational ties that the company still held in the town.
It is believed employees were informed of the decision today, however, it is not clear at this stage how many jobs will be affected.
A statement read: “Ruskin Leisure Ltd regrets to announce its intention to close the Eccleston Social Club due to the terms of the sale of the land.
“The last day of business operation is planned to be Friday, November 16. “Discussions on the closure plans have now commenced with affected employees.
“All club members will receive written communication regarding the closure in the next few days.”
