175th an­niver­sary

Lancashire Life - - SOCIETY -

It was a black tie af­fair for mem­bers and guests at the pres­ti­gious Winck­ley Club’s 175th an­niver­sary din­ner. Guests ar­rived at the New­drop Inn in Pre­ston to toast and cel­e­brate the mag­nif­i­cent an­niver­sary. The evening was hosted by cur­rent chair­man Bar­bara Dick­son who is also an Honorary Mem­ber, hav­ing re­mained a mem­ber of the club for 50 years. The club also com­mis­sioned a souvenir book­let which was made avail­able to mem­bers and takes the reader through the es­tab­lish­ment of The Winck­ley Club in 1844, through its un­bro­ken his­tory to the present day.

The club is now, es­sen­tially, a 130-strong mixed or­gan­i­sa­tion that meets through­out the year. Af­ter a de­li­cious din­ner, guests heard a toast from for­mer Winck­ley Club mem­ber and lo­cal his­to­rian An­drew Mather.
