Where Will Locals Go To Play Bingo Now?
Brace yourselves, we’ve just been informed of yet another bingo hall closure and this time, the residents of Hull will soon find themselves with nowhere to go to play bingo! How many clubs is that now? I’ve lost count!
A couple of days ago, news started circulating on social media about plans to close the Mecca Bingo Hull Cecil branch on Anlaby Road, and it wasn’t long before the rumours were proved to be true. Up and down the UK were are hearing of planned closures so as sad as it is, it’s no surprise.
A soon-to-be-redundant employee from the club has spoken to local media to confirm the proposals to close the bingo hall, blaming struggles with admissions and costs for the impending closure. This means locals have until Sunday 26th February to play their favourite bingo games.
Still 50% Off Bingo Though
All session prices and times will be the same, with prizes to be announced every afternoon and evening (based on ticket sales). There are still plenty of chances to win jackpots as well as the opportunity to book a party, order food and drinks. The venue will run as it would until that closing date.
John Dyson, operations director for Mecca Bingo said: “Proposals to close our club on Anlaby Road are being discussed. We have begun consultation with our team and will be making an announcement once those conversations are complete.”
An unnamed source wasn’t exactly thrilled at the prospect of being unemployed and what added insult to injury was the fact the staff were only informed of the closure just a day before it hit the headlines! The cost of living crisis was this disgruntled employees thoughts behind the closure, stating that staff were “devastated” as some had been working there for 20 years!
