Press Release -ARC Bar Facility

Press Release
Date: 28th March 2017

It is with much sadness that New Alresford Town Council is announcing with immediate effect the closure of the Alresford Recreation Centre bar, known affectionately to its users as the ‘ARC Bar facility’. The ARC bar facility has been managed by a number of groups since its inception and had suffered a number of financial failures before coming under the management of New Alresford Town Council.

New Alresford Town Council has spent considerable time evaluating the ARC Bar facility’s future and how a possible closure would impact the community; but as Local Government funding comes under further pressure, they felt unable to continue to operate the facility.

New Alresford Town Council is very grateful to each member of staff at the ARC, and appreciates their loyalty through this time of uncertainty.

If you have any queries or concerns, or you have an existing booking; please call at the office on 01962 732079 or drop us email to
