The fight to save a veteran squash club in Windsor is continuing - following the setting up of a committee of determined supporters.
The Windsor Club in Helston Lane had a stay of execution, when the site's new owners Shelbourne Senior Living agreed to let it carry on after plans to build a £16million care home on the site were delayed.
The company hopes to start work on the care home in the autumn, giving the members of the squash club until then to find a new home.
Nick Pellew, the club's committee chairman said it would continue on a not-for-profit basis until then.
A campaign had been started to encourage members to register their commitment to stay with the club.
"A target of 500 was needed to ensure the operation would be financially viable. We now have in excess of 550 in our contacts file and we are getting more every day," said Wade Kirkaldie, committee secretary.
To learn more contact the club at firstname.lastname@example.org or on Facebook as the Windsor Club.
