St.Marys Club closure

Very sorry to read in the LEADER yesterday that St.Marys Club in Flint has had to close. We have had two very enjoyable Record Fairs there in recent years (the last just back in September) it was a great little venue. After existing for half a Century the local Community will also miss it, so heres hoping it can re-open at some point in the future.
Our Record Fair calendar is not affected as we visited St.Marys Bi Annually, our September Fair in 2016 is at Connahs Quay Civic Hall.
