THE once thriving Mitchell and Darfield Social Club will be sold after the committee voted to close it due to lack of custom.
The club on Roy Kilner Road, Wombwell, opened in 1962 but a declining membership and dwindling trade led to the club committee's decision to close.
Groups based there, including a karate club and Highfield Ladies' Club, have been given notice and the club is expected to close in the next two to three weeks.
The club is owned by its membership - currently about 60.
A spokesman for the five-man committee said: "The decision was made at a general meeting last month. It was recommended by an accountant as we could not make any more cutbacks.
"Just one person other than the committee members turned up to the meeting.
"We had no option but to close. We did not want to see it happen but there has been a real lack of support.
"Rather than get into debt by continuing to open it up we decided to close. We have all had enough."
Although there is a 60-strong membership, including life members, few people had actually been coming through the doors.
The spokesman stressed no money was owed but that three bar staff and cleaners would be made redundant.
