Goodbye Gala, hello Buzz

Local player Jay Hall has been selected to cut the ribbon and officially reopen the club for the first time.

The 97-year-old is a regular member of the club and will join the team to celebrate the relaunch.

Buzz Bingo takes over from 124 of Gala Bingo’s sites, which serve over one million customers.

Simon Shaw, for Buzz Bingo, said: “When we asked our customers and colleagues to name a single word to describe their bing experience, the word ‘buzz’ came up time and time again.

“We pride ourselves on our community spirit and our friendly and supportive team is buzzing about being part of your next fun day or night out with friends and family.”
