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.
Visit to St Albans
After our events desert thanks to the Covid curse, we have succeeded in resurrecting our trip to St. Albans on Thursday 16th June. It should be a good day out so I hope a good number of you will want to come. Wives or other partners of friends are very welcome until the coach is full. So attached below are the revised details of the outing together with an application form which is self explanatory. Do join us.
With best regards
Visit to Sandhurst Military College
We have arranged a day at Sandhurst for our members and wives and partners to have a guided tour of the College, view the Commandant's Parade and have a picnic lunch in Old College.
Save the Date: 10th August 2022
More details will be posted when they have been prepared
Visit to Compton Verney Art Gallery and Park
During the summer we liase with Woking and District Probus Club regarding trips organised for members so that we do not overlap on destinations and dates. This enables us to consider combining resources so that members of both clubs could share a coach and visit sites that would interest members of both clubs.
At our monthly lunch held yesterday our member Ian Styman outlined the details of a trip to Compton Verney Art Gallery organised by Probus for Thursday 23rd June 2022. Details are attached and Ian can give you further information if you contact him on 01932 346361 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you wish to join that trip there is a Booking Form for Woking Seniors Members attached which should be sent to Mike Harris with payment of £38 by Tuesday 24th May 2022 at the address shown at the foot of the form.
We accept this is short notice to book but those interested might be glad to take up this opportunity.
