History of the Woking Seniors Club
The Woking Seniors Club was formed in 1962. On the 9th January 1962 a Mr N.P. Thompson, owner of the Central Stores in Chobham Road,Woking, sent out postcards to a few of his friends. They contained an invitation to meet at his house to discuss the possibility of setting up a social club for retired men in Woking. It may be significant that that Mrs Thompson, his wife, had started a Tuesday Lunch Club for ladies about two years before.
A history of the Woking Seniors Club has been written by Alfred Vice and this covers the years from 1962 until 2012. A copy is available at each Luncheon.
