BLESSING Heaven On Earth owner Dhirubhai Patel, his daughter Aruna and Hindu Priest Madhusudan Dave who blessed the premises
A ‘SWINGERS’ club’ in Blackburn town centre has closed down after its owners were shunned by the community.
Heaven on Earth, which was originally advertised as a health club, was opened by Dhiru Patel in St Peter Street in June 2010.
Mr Patel, 62, closed the premises after his family was taunted because of the business’s reputation.
However, he is now planning to rebrand the company as ‘Venue’, offering function rooms and party venues for businesses and students.
Venue is due to open in July and will provide a space for meetings, conferences and religious ceremonies.
Mr Patel, who has four daughters and seven grandchildren, said: “People don’t want to talk to me in our community and my daughters are getting really annoyed.
“They got a lot of stick for it and they are very embarrassed about it.
“I don’t want to lose the family so there is no option for us. I am doing this for my children and grandchildren.”
It was opened by Hindu priest Madhusudan Dave, who blessed the premises, and Mr Patel’s daughter Aruna.
Kate Hollern, leader of Blackburn with Darwen Council, said she was pleased the swingers club had closed.
She said: “I was surprised that there was a market for that type of thing in Blackburn, I don’t think there was ever any need for anything like that. I am pleased it’s going to be a conference room although I’m surprised they are keeping the sauna.”
