** Saturday Entertainment **
Christchurch Conservative Club was formed on Monday 13th May 1881 in a barn at the back of ‘The Wagon and Horses’- a pub opposite were we are now. There are no records between the opening and 1912.
Two facts are known; we were originally called ‘The Christchurch Working Men’s Conservative Club’ and we joined the A.C.C. in 1897.
This is a rough record of some aspects of Committee meetings for the period from 1912 It excludes 1926 – 1938 records of which cannot be found.
Prior to this The Club consisted of the main building. Half the ground floor was a lounge. The other half was split into card room and reading room. Plus the extension as far as the clock which was flat roof. This was originally stables for Police Horses as The building was originally The Police Station. This was the billiard room.
May 13th 1912. Reference is made to The New Club premises. This was the edition of an extension as far as the curtains we have drawn when we have bands. It was a Tin building and was open to the apex of the roof. It remained until 1993 when finally the present permanent brick building was constructed. Money obtained for all this work was through the issue of a loan stock from members.
Further reference is made to The New Steward.
The Chairman and Secretary were instructed to deal with Stewards agreement and with his grievances. Steward was also instructed not to serve members who were in arrears with subs. after their names had been posted on the notice board.
