BREAKING: South Burnett RSL closed until further notice

A SOUTH Burnett club is closed until further notice while they await a very important document.

Nanango RSL members were left shocked after they attempted to enter the popular establishment on Thursday.

A sign on the door advises the RSL will be closed until further notice.

A Nanango RSL spokesperson said it was simply an administrative issue.

"We are waiting to be issued a new licence," they said.

The club is patiently waiting for the office of liquor and gaming regulations to send through the document that allows them to legally serve alcohol and provide gambling facilities.

"Unfortunately we can't open the doors until we get that piece of paper," the spokesperson said.

"It is simply administrative."

The popular RSL was confident the new licence would not take too long to come through.

"We were guaranteed a very short period of time," they said.

"We are trying for this afternoon."

The RSL spokesperson had a message for all their members and guests.

"We are sorry for the inconvenience and we look forward to opening the doors again soon," they said.
