The Newfoundpool Working Mens Club is the social focal point of the area
Bill Wheelband, who runs the Newfoundpool Working Men's club close to Hawthorne Street in Leicester, takes part in the project called The Street.
BBC Leicester's Tony Wadsworth launched the project after 'adopting' the street in Newfoundpool - the area where he grew up as a child.
The Street project takes a closer look at the lives behind closed doors and the community that is shared.
The WMC on Beatrice Road is the social focal point for the area.
Success at Newfoundpool Working Mens Club
At a time when Working Mens Clubs across the city are facing closure, the Newfoundpool WMC is still running successfully with around 1,900 members signed up.

He started working at the club in 1990 as a part-time barman whilst working for Dunlop.
Having really enjoyed the job at the club, Bill later went on to become club steward.
