St George’s Hospital 1818 – 1995
Subscriptions were collected for many years by C N Sid Attwood, who banked and looked after them meticulously. This primarily for funding towards our own hoped for Social Club. The Hospital Management Committee eventually agreed, to provide a suitable area of land. They also promised to match us Pound for Pound, towards the cost of building the Social Club premises. It was eventually built in 1970, by local firm Macbel, on the same site where it still stands and survives today. It has been extended and upgraded many times since, sometimes by Contractors, but very often by the good natured will and labour of our great Hospital-Artisan and other Staff members. It continues to provide a place to meet Socially and relax, for Club Events with Live Bands, Groups and Discos for Dances, Halloween, Christmas and New Year, Fancy Dress events etc. Members Children’s Parties and Panto’s, Bingo, Quiz Nights, Race Nights and Hire for Private Celebrations. It has supported many Sporting Sections over the years including – Darts, Pool, Football, Cricket, Rugby, Karate, etc.
