Telford Mecca bingo will close after 29 years in town

The Mecca site in Southwater will close from next month

Mecca Bingo, based in Southwater Square in Telford, said it would close from Monday February 7.

It comes after 29 years in the City, with a flood of disappointed responses following the announcement on the club’s Facebook post.

Confirming the closure, a statement from the club said: “We are very sad to confirm that the club will close from Monday 7th February, and we want to say a huge thank you to each of our amazing customers for their loyalty and support – we will miss you very much.

“We are working on plans to make the next three weeks memorable and celebrate the last 29 years we have been here at Telford, for you and for the team.

“Please be patient with us as we all adjust to the news, but feel free to come and chat, we’ll update you here on our plans for the next three weeks.”

Mecca has had a bingo club in Telford for 29 years

The closure means there are no more Mecca bingo clubs in the county, while a major unit in Southwater will also need a new tenant.

The other bingo hall in Telford is Globe Bingo in Donnington, while in Shrewsbury there is Buzz Bingo on Castle Gates next to the station.
