Shirley Late Knights AKA Shirley 41 Club
About Shirley Late Knights
Chairman : Bruce Bragg
Secretary : Tim Brown
Treasurer : Tony Silman
Shirley Late Knights is the registered name for Shirley 41 Club, and we meet regularly
every first Thursday of the month. Our main meeting place is the St. John's Hotel in
Our club was formed in about 1960 by those members of Shirley Round Table who had
already had to "move on" due to the age rule. Shirley Round Table itself had only formed
in 1955 but by now was a thriving organisation.
The 41'ers applied for affiliation to the 41 Club Organisation and this was granted on
24th April 1961.
From then on the members have maintained a strong Club and forged an extremely
good relationship with Shirley Round Table, and all members are (mostly!!) welcome at
any of their meetings. There is usually the odd bit of helpful encouragement at their
business meetings, often revolving around the phrase "it wasn't like this in MY day!"
Who are we?
We are a Club with about 40 odd (very
odd!) members who meet regularly
once a month for speaker meetings,
the occasional devious quiz,
discussions, outside meetings,
barbeques in the summer, and
generally trying to keep Shirley Round
Table in order.
