Throckley Union Jack Social Club History


The early days of the Throckley Union Jack Social Club.


Throckley Union Jack joined the Club & Institute Union in April 1922 and was in much smaller premises. In 1967 the decision to build our existing building was made, it was opened in March 1968. We have over 1000 members and look forward to celebrating our centenary in 2022.

Where has the time gone?
The years have slipped away.
Every time you look around,
There is a brand “new” day.

The old passes on—
Making way for the new.
The new becomes many,
And the old becomes few.

Where has the time gone?
For, longing are the years,
Which brought joy and laughter
And very rarely tears.
