A Market Rasen couple are bringing live entertainment to the heart of the town after taking on the stewardship of Market Rasen Social Club.

Eve and Shaun Bennett officially took over the reins on October 1 and since then have put together a programme of entertainment for all ages to enjoy.

“The club is massively under used,” said Eve.

“We want to take it back to what it used to be.

“We want to get people off their sofas and back out socialising.

“We know families are on a budget, but membership of the club is just £12 for adults, £6 for OAPs and under 18s free, with value bar prices and entertainment in a safe environment suitable for all the family to enjoy.”

The Social Club, in the town’s Serpentine Street, is run by a committee, which means all profits are ploughed back into the club.

The kitchen is currently being refurbished and will be open from November 1, offering Wednesday curry buffet, Friday fish and chips and Sunday carvery alongside the usual bar meals.

The club is open from 6.30pm until late Monday to Thursday and 12 noon until late Friday to Sunday.
