The Golden Eagle pub on the Meckham Road has finally closed its doors to business after more than eighty years.The last night, Saturday, saw a full house. Over two hundred people turned up for a last drink with the party mood spilling out onto the pavement.The closure was confirmed by the licensing committee of Grenberg City Council last month even though a thousand-strong petition against closure had been handed in by local residents. The committee sought the closure after repeated warnings about noise had gone unheeded.Reactions in the neighbourhood were understandably mixed. Long term local resident, eighty-year-old Jack Hemmingway said, “A very sad day indeed, I had my first drink in there when I was fourteen in 1946.” But others welcomed the closure. Rebecca Gold, an office manager, said, “I sometimes could not get to sleep till after midnight because of the noise. I was falling asleep at work.” Planning permission has been given to turn the building into three residential flats.

Dear Sir / Madam,I have your advertisement for three flats in the Grenberg area.My client, Jana Wolski, is interested in renting the 100 square metre attic in thecentre of the town to accommodate both herself and her university sculpturework.I can see the rent is EUR 950 per month, but I would also like to know if a deposit is payable and if so how much. I assume the flat is currently vacant and that thetenant can move in immediately. Jana would also like to inspect the flat. I wonder if that could be arranged for next Thursday at 10.30. I would be grateful if you could send me the exact address. Jill Pipes Accommodation OfficeGrenberg University
