Tuesday 9th May
The visit to Portsmouth Historic Dockyard was a great success. Splendidly organised by Peter Green of the Woking Seniors Club. The visit was in conjunction with members and friends of the Woking Town Twinning Association.
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.
