Pavilion Bingo Barrow, Roose Road Background And History
Family run club Pavilion Bingo closed in January 2012 due to its lack of economic viability. Owner Mr Fleming laid blame squarely at the government's door citing what many believe to be the unfair taxation levied on bingo halls. He also added that the closure would not only be a loss to its employees, but also the community as a whole, as well as its members who will be saddened at its loss. We do know that the club had previously been a cinema, but we are not sure of its name.
If you have any further details that may assist us, and you would like to share them with our readers, we would love to hear from you. If you let us know what you know, we will put the details online with your name credited (if you wish, or we can credit the article as anonymous). You will be doing a service to the bingo community and posterity by helping us record details of all Britain's bingo clubs and halls. Thank you.

Update - July 2013
We have just found out that the club was originally known as The Pavilion cinema which closed in 1959. The building is now re-opening part-time as an antiques shop called 'Rich Pickings'. The building is apparently still in good condition, retaining many of the original features. There are future hopes that the premises could become an auction house, sadly no bingo anymore, but at least the building is still standing and has been well maintained.
