Newport navy club thriving a year on from lockdown fear of closure

Written on June 3, 2021

The Newport Royal Naval Association has been a safe harbour for veterans for more than 30 years, but has also hosted groups of all ages and become a destination for some of the town’s lively entertainment events including open mic nights.

It meant the club came to rely on its takings from hosting various social events, and when coronavirus made that impossible the committee were staring down the barrel of having to shut for good.

But the volunteers were able to coordinate kind donations of sanitising equipment and put a clear plan in place, while negotiations with Telford & Wrekin Council and the club’s landlords have been constant.
