Success club hits its 100th
A working men’s club in Selston is marking its 100th anniversary next week.
The Jokers – said to be going from strength to strength while other pubs in the town close down – will mark the milestrone with a party on Wednesday.
There will be a singer, buffet and raffle at the bash, which kicks off at 7pm.
A new committee at the club turned its fate around three years ago when it was just weeks away from closure.
Committee member Tracy Barker said: “We really picked it up and got new members.
“Where other pubs are closing down, we’re going from strength to strength.
Committee member Jane Lowe said it was a ‘lovely place’.
“It’s an absolutrely lovely pub. A lovely little place.
“All the other pubs in Selston seem to be up for sale. Its amazing it’s 100 years old.”
