Conservative Club flies the flag for special anniversary

Milestone for Conservative Club.

Ashton’s Waterloo and Taunton Conservative Club celebrated its 130th anniversary in style over the bank holiday weekend.

The day included live entertainment, a crown green bowls match, food and drink stalls, and a hamper draw.

The club, built by the architects John Eaton and Sons, who also designed Dukinfield Town Hall, opened in 1891 as a private gentleman’s club.

Distinguished guests from the Association of Conservative Clubs and Tameside Councillors Dan Costello and Liam Billington attended the day’s proceedings.

Club chairman Leon Tamcken said: “Like many clubs up and down the country, the Covid 19 pandemic hit us hard, and the recovery has been a tough one.

“However we’ve made it through and we’re proud to be able to celebrate this amazing milestone.”

The club would like to give special thanks to the event sponsors Be-ginning Gin Co, Tameside Glass, Ashton American Diner, and Thwaites Brewery.
