The monthly newsletter for Members and Friends of S & C H S.
Issue Three Vol. 2020
Welcome to Issue 3 of the History Society’s newsletter, intended to keep members and friends fully up to date with what’s going on behind the scenes while we are unable to hold our regular meetings.
Are still being held in a fashion, with the Committee meeting via Zoom most Thursdays.
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 mens club with a billiard table.
If anyone knows the whereabouts of Dunsdale, please let us know.
This month, a WordSearch puzzle.
All the words are the answers to last months crossword and are listed below.
The first correctly completed WordSearch sent in to email@example.com or dropped through my letterbox at 47 Westcourt Lane, wins a box of chocolates. No one claimed last months so I had to eat them in case they went off.

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.
