HISTORY: The Wellington Social Club can trace its history back to WW2 when it was originally created to be the base for the local Home Guard – at that time it was located at The Farm on Auberrow Road.
After the end of the war, having proved itself to be a thriving meeting place, it became Wellington Working Men’s Social Club and moved to Stoney Close, its location today. It is now just called Wellington Social Club and new members are welcome.
FACILITIES: The Social Club is wholly owned by its members and provides a meeting place for local people to enjoy its facilities in the small bar or larger function room, with darts, pool, skittles and regular music entertainment. The venue can be privately hired for events such as parties, weddings, after funeral get-togethers and Christenings as well as meetings and exercise classes.
Sporting enthusiasts will find the Club is ‘the place to be’ as it has access to all the TV sport channels on its big screen in the large function room and “big matches” are regularly shown!
The social club also hosts a display of photos from the villages past and is an ongoing project.
A wide selection of beers and spirits is on sale at very reasonable prices to members, who are asked to pay only a small nominal fee every year. The ethos of the Social Club is to provide a warm welcome in an environment which will foster and cement community spirit.
Come along and meet new people and ensure the continuation of this local amenity which has already lasted for several generations!

Saturday and Sunday: from 12noon to 11pm
