The Original Club Burgee

PSCOriginalBurgeeWe have unearthed an original Club Burgee dating back to 1958 and this is now on display in our Trophy Cabinet. This burgee is very different to the one that we now have. The club burgee with a red dragon on a white background was introduced shortly after 1960 and was use on the Club handbook in 1965.

The present bar will become the new restaurant.
