The Mecca Bingo halls have been around in the UK for a lot of years. They have been welcoming bingo enthusiasts for decades and have made sure that each bingo session is as fun as the next one. But the ones in Plymouth and Bridgwater are set to close their doors this summer.
Customers are surprised and shocked at the decision of Mecca Bingo to close their favorite venues. Loyal customers are looking for ways to keep the staff employed, but ultimately, the popular bingo venues will be closing down.
The Plymouth Mecca Bingo
The Mecca Bingo Hall in Plymouth is set to close its doors later this summer. It has been part of the community for decades which is why customers are distraught. The staff has already been told that they will be out of a job and some of the loyal clients are looking for ways to help them. In other words, they’re suggesting that they could find work at Gala bingo.
The news came out of the blue to bingo players as there was no reason stated as to why the venue is closing down its doors. Moreover, this wasn’t the only venue that will close later this summer. Still, players are shocked because they won’t be able to enjoy their favorite games at a bingo hall that has been part of the community for years. The same can be said for the players who frequent the Bridgwater Mecca Bingo Hall.
The Bridgwater Mecca Bingo
The Mecca Bingo hall in Bridgwater has been around for over 40 years which is why visitors were devastated when they found out that the venue would be closing down later in the summer.
Similar to the Plymouth venue, there was no reason given as to why this was the case. But the customers are welcome to visit the venue for a chat as long as it’s open.
This is another venue that has been with the community and has created bonds that will last. Sadly, it’s closing its doors and bingo players will need to look for other venues to enjoy their favorite games. The officials at the bingo venue are also sorry for having to sever the ties they have built with the community over the many years.
Things will change and the customers will adapt. So will the staff and both will find new ways to keep each other occupied.
Sadly, the bingo fans at Plymouth and Bridgwater won’t be able to enjoy their favorite bingo games at their frequent venues. The staff will need to adapt to the new situation and the bingo enthusiasts will need to go to different bingo venues.
Some of them have offered to help the Mecca Bingo staff with finding new jobs which shows how tightly knit the venues and the community was. Old relationships are lost so that new ones can be formed which means both the bingo players and staff will have new opportunities to look forward to.
