THE group hoping to reopen Breakers are on the brink of signing the deal that will give them the keys to the door of the bowling facility in Andover’s Bridge Street.

Group spokeswoman Anji Gillies said: “This means we can get in, clean, repair and start the exciting task of getting Breakers open – hopefully for Hallowe’en this year.”

Breakers Community Interest Company means that profits made are ploughed back into the group or used by other community projects in the town.

The group hopes to sign the deal with Wilko within days.
