Senior citizens mark 50 years in Grantham
A senior citizens’ club has celebrated its 50th birthday...as it is planning to move out to allow the building of a multiplex cinema.
The Grantham Senior Citizens’ Club has called a building next door to the Reel Cinema, in St Catherine’s Road, home for half a century.
To mark the special anniversary, members had a party.
The building was opened on September 8, 1965, by the then Mayor of Grantham, Mr J. H. Foster.
Now, the club is fund-raising towards a new facility, which should be located at the rear of the cinema as it stands now. This is due to plans by South Kesteven District Council to build a brand new, six-screen cinema on land which currently houses the club, a car park and the two-screen Reel.
The multiplex is expected to form part of a large leisure and cultural quarter in Grantham.
