Gig night bid to save bar
1:00pm Friday 6th April 2012 in News
A FUNDRAISING gig is being held to save a struggling bar.
Ronnie’s Bar on Old Road, Clacton, is in danger of closing.
A musical extravaganza night has been organised to raise funds for the bar, with the musicians agreeing to play for free.
Owner Linda Lockert-Smith has appealed for customers to support the venue.
She said: “Seeing it struggle is heartbreaking.
“Ronnie’s Bar is not like any other bar in Clacton. It is really unique.
“It provides a stage for a lot of young musicians and I think it is very important in that respect.
“It has been a huge headache but I have never given up. I have put everything I have into the bar and I am determined to keep it going.”
The musical extravaganza will take place from 7pm on Sunday.
