Uncertain future for iconic building in Reading

A community group looking to save Reading's Central Club has revealed it has offered to buy the site from the council for almost £1 million.

The building in London Street has been empty for more than a decade and needs hundreds of thousands of pounds spent on repairs.

Reading Borough Council has put the building onto the open market which means it could be sold to a commercial developer, but the town's black community says it wants to reclaim its 'spiritual home'.
