Gala nightclub closes

A GALASHIELS nightclub has closed its doors on its fifth anniversary.

Move Music Venue on Overhaugh Street shut down last week, with a lack of business believed to be the main reason behind the closure.

The venue opened in October 2007 and brought a series of big name acts to the town, including ex-Happy Mondays frontman Shaun Ryder, DJ Andrew Weatherall and indie pop band Pearl and the Puppets.

Meanwhile, a planning application has been submitted by Borders Cycles and Hawick Skate Park Voluntary Group to turn Diesels nightclub into a shop and cafe.
