Amid rumours of poor management and spiralling debts the Caversham Conservatives have sold off their club.
It may have something to do with the defection of two Tory Cllrs in Mark Ralph and Jamie Chowdhary last year.
"Cllr Ralph was highly critical of Reading East Conservative Association and Reading East MP, Rob Wilson over the deselection of Cllr Chowdhary as the Conservative candidate for Peppard Ward in the 2012 elections. "
