Went to bid farewell to John at the BFS today and had a nice chat with him. He told us that there was a gambling establishment going to open in the Port in the next couple of months. Not sure how I feel about this really but I'm sure anyone owning one of the Taylor Wimpey apartments won't be too happy as it's directly below them. I saw the building in the summer and thought it was a children's indoor play centre...how wrong was I

Time will tell what it's like, but I'm not sure it looks exactly salubrious or is appropriate for PP.

Agree with Sparky don't think it's right for PP. Don't know what the gaming laws are, opening times/ closing times etc but it may cause trouble for the residents with unsavoury people hanging around. As Debz says will wait and see.

I'm not disagreeing with anybody, but, hopefully it's not what we think - I would not have thought, though, that there is any chance at all that a quick survey of the residents and visitors to PP would have led anyone to the conclusion that such an establishment could possibly be successful. That is, PP does not have nor attract that sort of punter. I hope!!!!!!

Where abouts are the apartments, down the hill from the Flora apartments opposite where TYM used to be, I think we need to be careful in comments regarding the people who go to casinos, they are very popular in the UK, so some of our members may enjoy visiting them! PP can be all things to all people.

Yes,you're quite correct. If anyone was offended by my last post, I apologize. What I did mean, without being derogatory, is that in general terms and for business reasons, I do not think that it would work in PP.

I don't think there's anything wrong with casinos at all or people who go to them. My post was pointing out there was actually going to be one and thinking it was in a strange place below new apartments. I certainly wouldn't be happy if I lived there as it will potentially make that part of town very noisy. Sws it is on the opposite corner to where TYM was.

I have spoken to only a few locals about this and i get the feeling that they are not too happy that it's Russian backed.

Sorry for any offence caused I suppose I'm very insular here as we have no such establishments in Northern Ireland it's against the law. Still I'm not sure about it, and why are the Russians interested?

I am not an expert on Russians or their way of life. However, some Russians have money which they opt to spread/spend in the UK and Europe. Sometimes on property and on occasions business outlets and they are spreading around holiday hotspots.

Time will tell but I am sure owners of property in the Taylor Wimpey Apartments might prefer other types of business to take up the vacant units on the ground floor of their properties.

How do you know it's run by Russians?
It has no licence as yet and is not open.
Rumours, rumours, rumours.
Let's get the facts before we all start jumping to conclusions.

I spoke to some other locals tonight and they said there will only be slot machines, no card games or roulette.
