Breaking News: Local Club Faces turmoil as Beloved Venue Faces Closure

In a shocking turn of events, the heart of Beaudesert, the beloved Club Beaudesert (formerly known as the Beaudesert RSL Club) has been dealt a devastating blow. After serving the community and veterans for countless years, the Club has been forced to confront an uncertain future as their cherished building, which also happens to be their clubhouse, has been sold to outside interests by their own landlord (the local Sub-Branch).

Despite being a financially robust and well-run establishment, the Club’s hopes of securing their own property have been dashed as negotiations fell through, leaving them with a mere 4½ years remaining on their lease. Determined to maintain their connection with Beaudesert and continue their invaluable support to the local community and veterans, the Club is now facing the daunting task of relocation.

In an effort to navigate this challenging period, the Club has enlisted the expertise of the DWS team to devise a strategy for their relocation. The outpouring of support from the community has been overwhelming, demonstrating the profound impact the Club has had on the lives of many.

As the Club braces for this significant transition, uncertainty looms over their future in Beaudesert, leaving members and supporters on edge. The team at DWS are looking forward to working with the Club Beaudesert team to build upon their well established foundations to create a bigger and brighter future.
