NO JOY FOR NIGHTCLUB
The man who was prepared to put £500,000 into turning Mcues snooker club in Haverhill into a nightclub said the borough council planners were not acting in the best interests of the town by blockijng the move.
The council’s planning committee were being recommended to turn down the bid by three Cambridge businessmen, Christopher Bourchier, Peter Ramus and Charles Smith.
Mr Smith said they had been lobbying in the town and found that the council’s intentions were going against what they had found.
DEBT PROBLEMS ON THE RISE
The manager of the Haverhill Citizens Advice Bureau said it had seen a 75per cent increase in the past year on the number of people with multiple debt problems than over the previous 12 months.
Brigette Haig told the Bureau’s annual meeting that in about 80 per cent of all enquiries money was the main or a contributory factor to the problem.
More expertise was needed to help with such financial problems, she added.
