Blooming cheek! Flowers stolen from outside revamped social club in Arnold


Thieves have stolen plants from new flower beds placed outside a recently revamped social club in Arnold.

The plants were put in as part work to transform the former Arnold Labour Club on High Street.

The club has now been renamed The Bonington Club to honour Richard Parkes Bonington, a famous English landscape painter who was born in the town.

The venue has announced it will open its doors on July 4.

The plants were stolen just hours after being planted.

Management at the venue are now hoping the public can now help them replace the stolen flowers .

The venue’s bar manager Paula Martin told Gedling Eye: “We do a lot for the community and elderly people and we’ve spent hours doing up the inside and outside. For someone to come along and destroy our hard work is soul destroying.

“Anyone who wants to donate flowers can contact our Facebook page. We will happily come and collect them.”

You can contact the club about donation via their Facebook page here:
