Fine example of a mining community’s social hub. Sadly villages like Flockton have become places to sleep and park your car rather than somewhere to cohabit as a rural community. Thus a club like this is an anachronism.

Strange ho in pursuit of ‘sustainable development’ we are willing to destroy rural social infrastructure to develop swathes of houses in villages.

Its just bad planning, no excuses. We are letting the market make planning decisions for us.
