Shire Park Club in Welwyn Garden City is facing an uncertain future after it was told it will need to relocate.

The social club, which was previously the ICI Recreation Club, currently lease a premises from Tesco in Shire Park, off The Boulevard Roundabout.

However, after being based there for 55 years, it has emerged the club will not be given the opportunity to renew the lease when it expires in July 2016.

A Tesco spokesman said: “We are working with them and their committee members on future options, including alternative facilities for the club, and are pleased the discussions are progressing constructively.”

Tesco announced in January that it is moving its headquarters from Cheshunt to Welwyn Garden City.
