History Updated!

History Society member, Jean Wooldridge came across an intriguing article in the Dover Express archives which we have reproduced below.

The Men’s Sports and Social Club eventually became the Shepherdswell Sports Club. In 1911 Mr Goldfinch, in whose premises it met, lived at 7 The Terrace and in the 1920s at ‘Dunsdale’ in Shepherdswell.

The question we are all asking is, where on Church Hill was the club?

There can only be a few likely candidate premises that had the space to turn a room into a working men’s club with a billiard table.

If anyone knows the whereabouts of Dunsdale, please let us know.

Puzzles

This month, a WordSearch puzzle.

All the words are the answers to last month’s crossword and are listed below.

The first correctly completed WordSearch sent in to keithbryanroberts@gmail.com or dropped through my letterbox at 47 Westcourt Lane, wins a box of chocolates. No one claimed last month’s so I had to eat them in case they went off.

AUGUSTINE / BATTLEOFTHEDUCKS / BEAUXFIELD / BOTOLPHSTREET / CARPENTERS / CHALK / CHILLI / COBNUT / COLDREDSTREET / COXHILL / EDEN  / FORGE / GOLGOTHA / GUILDFORD / HAZLINGDANE / HOMEGUARD / INLY / LINDEN / MOON / PENFOLD / PUCKLAND / RICE / SIBERT / SPAR / STEVENS /      TYPSYGARDENER / VYES

Projects

Are you doing any research at the moment or do you want to start?

It would be great if you have something to share and if you want some help starting or help along the way, we have some gifted minds who might be able to help.

So just ask.
