Mr Robbins, a fellow part-time taxi driver, said many people he spoke to believed the club was closed for good.

But now he hopes to attract a host of new faces through its doors.

He added: “I drive taxis part-time and so many people used to say to me that they thought the club had shut down but that’s just not the case.

“I’m delighted the members rallied round and helped the club survive.

“We set up a committee that worked non-stop for about nine months all raising funds and we got some great external support from people as well.

“It has been a very stressful time just getting this to come together and there were times where I felt as though I was trying my best but getting nowhere.

“But I’m just glad that we’re now where we are and it’s all about looking ahead.”
