A PETITION set up to fight for the future of Weymouth Angling Society on the town's harbourside has gained more than 850 signatures in a couple of days.
Weymouth and Portland Borough Council is considering knocking down the club and turning the area into a car park to boost its funds.
The council maintain proposals to refuse to renew the club's lease will allow it to generate a greater financial return from the site.
The proposal goes to the council's management board tomorrow which will decide whether to forward it on to the council's management committee.
Furious anglers have vowed to fight council proposals to demolish their harbourside club house and launched the petition against the proposals.
