The future of Swanley Working Men’s Club is up in doubt after members voted to sell the building and call it a day.
The club in the High Street has been going for more than a century and it once enjoyed a membership of more than 1,400.
That has now collapsed to fewer than 300, with only a small proportion of them said to attend regularly.
A ballot at the end of last month saw a majority of members vote in favour of selling the building to developers for around £1.1 million.
Some of the cash will be used to cover the club’s debts and members are also in line for a share of the proceeds.
There was an option to sell the building for a smaller sum in exchange for the developers constructing a new home for the club, but that was rejected.
The group’s executive committee has the final say on the club’s future.
The three-storey redbrick building has three full size snooker tables, a bar, a function room and a downstairs hall.
The working men’s club has been running there since 1911.
