The bowling alley, in the Plungington area, appears to have closed as its parent company goes into administration.

A staff member, who contacted Blog Preston, shared a picture of the sign which stated: “The site is now closed for business.

“We would like to thank our customers for all their support and apologise for any inconvenience this closure may cause.”
