Westwood Works 1903-2003

Retired Members

The Retired Members' Section was very well supported with much use made of the Sports Club House facilities and the opportunity to meet old colleagues while indulging in the many activities on offer. The Section was formed in 1959 and had at its height around 130 members, each paying a subscription of 5p per week. Various competitions were organised - snooker, dominoes (for the Jack Barrett shield), outdoor bowls (for the Harold Crowther Shield), etc. An important date in the Retired Members' calendar was the Annual Dinner.)
