Christian Group Purchases Gala Bingo Hall

A Christian group, The Potter's House Christian, has purchased the historic building that once housed a Gala Bingo club with plans of converting it into a church.

The Gala Bingo club closed as of November 17th and the group has already applied for permission to transform it.

A statement has been posted on their website:

"Our desire and aim is to see men and women fulfil God's calling for their lives in the various ministries that are available for Christian believers according to God's word and personal calling".

Ms. Andrews, a Gala Bingo member had the following to say when she heard that the building was sold, "It's a beautiful and historic building so it would be a real shame if it was left empty.'

"The building has a capacity of over 1,000 and residents are up in arms partly over worries about parking but also about the loss of yet another entertainment place in the local area.

"It was a very popular place for older women in the area and operated almost like a lunch club for many of them."

A Gala Bingo spokesperson indicated that the sale was made for "commercial" purposes and added, "We have been considering the welfare of our staff and customers every step of the way and are currently in consultation with the club's 19 employees, where possible we will be looking to find them alternative employment opportunities within the Group. '

"We also recognise the important role the club plays in the community, and will continue to offer our customers an enjoyable bingo experience at our nearby clubs in Stratford and East Ham."
