Nalgo Social Club, in North Street, Hornchurch, has been run by supporters for the past 25 years. But they have until April to leave after the council served them a notice.

On Wednesday, about 50 people protested outside the town hall. Mike Shead, from the Save the Nalgo campaign, said: “We are demonstrating against the council’s intention to close our social club.

“It is a community resource for residents, staff and retired staff and we don’t want it to go.”
