39/45 club

The 39/45 Club began in 1985 on the 40th anniversary of VE Day. A small group of ex-servicemen then met in the bar for a chat and a drink.

As the group grew it cleaned up the (then disused) Lodge in order to hold meetings. Membership grew to about 30 where it has remained.

New members are introduced by current members and at the monthly meetings we try to provide speakers who promote lively discussion. After the speaker we have a break for refreshments – sandwiches and pie provided by members on a rotation basis. Then we have the ‘formal’ meeting to discuss forthcoming trips, games of snooker, pool, bowls etc. Currently, in addition to the monthly meetings we also have several regular events during the year.

These include an Annual Dinner, a formal event held each year. We have the St Valentine’s Day Luncheon at a local restaurant and also the ‘Summer Social’ in the Park Room. We also have a representation at the Armistice Day Service at Norley Church (followed by a very nice luncheon at the Hare & Hounds)
