Not a pretty sight is it..Perhaps when the members see this they might do some thing.The lower Ince bit is ok.

When the club was a lot smaller that was the main entrance on Albert Street, probably a fire door now. The main entrance is now on Warrington Road in the new(ish) extension.

My second cousin David Johnson was either the President or the Secretary there for many many years. It is not a club I visited a great deal, but I have always had a good night when I have.

I remember going through those doors for the kids day out every year, the line of buses that took us to the seaside and the pocket money we were given to enjoy it!

It isn't a nice picture, begs the question why did some one take it?

My Dad and Grandad where members for years and the club would take all the kids to Southport every year and give us two half crowns and a ten bob note and in the fifties that was a fortune mi mam would give us five bob to waste ont fur un save the rest for sumut sencible like clothes.
