Although not part of our Club There was another Conservative Club in Westhoughton. It was Situated in Wingates. Tom Newton MBE Kindly let us Put this picture on our Website. The Club was on the second floor over  Hough's barbers shop which is the building on the right hand side.  It occupied the area of the 3 windows, 1 on Church Street and 2 on Manchester Road.

We Believe this picture is from around The 1920's era.

Wingates Conservative Club came to light when we found out about an Arthur Hamer, Who was presented with a silver topped cane and a case of pipes at the above Club in 1910.
