TWO Alcester men are still determined to bring entertainment to the over 30s in the town, despite losing more than £2,000 during their last venture.

Steve Richford and Pete Laight felt the very young and very old in Alcester were catered for but there was not really anything which was specifically aimed at people in the 30s age bracket.

The two men approached the Greig Centre and arranged a number of entertainment evenings, shelling out the cost of advertising from their own pockets, as well as hiring a disco and groups.

But at the last event, just 23 people turned up, resulting in a huge loss for both men.

Mr Richford said: "This was such a disappointment for us. We really felt these events would go down well with people aged 30 and over in Alcester as currently they have no events they can call their own.

"The first events were successful and we did make our money back but the last one was simply a disaster with just a few people turning up."

Despite the disappointment, Mr Richford said he and Mr Laight would be willing to give the venture another go.

"We still think there's a gap in the market and we'd be willing to try and plug it.

"If people didn't like the events we organised, perhaps they could contact me and say what they would enjoy taking part in."
