AS THE country gears up to cheer on England’s Three Lions during the European Championships, Catshill Social Club is hoping the local community will support it coming out of the Covid-19 pandemic.
The club on Meadow Road will be showing all the matches live and is open to everyone whether members or visitors.
The family-orientated venue, which is hoping for new members to join it, began life as a ‘Gentleman’s Reading Room’ in 1907 when membership was just 4d (in old money) and included a cup of tea or coffee.
The club has survived two world wars, economic pressures and now a pandemic.
As well as the football matches, the club offers a variety of activities, including a games room with darts, pool, snooker, dominoes and cards.
Bromsgrove Folk Club is also based there and it holds skittles nights, bingo and wrestling nights.
It also has a group of pigeon fanciers, car boot sales, children’s parties, baby day care, tribute nights, an annual pantomime, the village’s Remembrance Sunday commemorations, Halloween night and live entertainment every Saturday.
A spokesperson said: “Our pricing structure keeps our prices at a reasonable cost to enable people with low income the opportunity to enjoy the varied programme on offer.
“We have many organisations that use the club, including, football referees, The Buffs, political parties and The Legion.”
