Derbyshire social club hit by arson attack

  • 3-30-2011

_51899500_dscf4271.jpgA social club in Derbyshire has been completely destroyed in an arson attack.

The blaze at the building on Holme Lane, South Wingfield, was discovered in the early hours of Sunday morning.

Local residents said the building had been damaged by vandals in the past but there had never been anything on this scale.

Anyone who has any information about the fire is asked to contact Derbyshire Police.

It is not certain whether the clubhouse, which is used by sports teams and social groups, will be rebuilt.

Sue Else, who helps run the club, said: "It's devastating because so much work has been put into running the place over the years.

"It might not be worth a lot but it has meant a lot to the clubs and groups that have used it."
