Our club was established in August 1955 as ‘Red Rose Club for the over 60’s as a successor to the Bury Branch of the Co-operative Women’s’ Guild a campaigning organisation.

The Bury Group was founded in the 1890’s but the welfare state meant that it did not have the same relevance in the 1950’s.

Our aim now is to make it an inclusive social club particularly for those who have had to retire early due to poor health. Our social activities include singer/musicians, people giving talks and bingo. Examples of singer-musicians include Linda Jennings who as a contestant on the ‘Voice’ TV programme was selected by Tom Jones. Twice a year we have the superb Veterans Choir (see photo) and one of our regular speakers is Brian Halliwell who gives highly entertaining talks on ‘The Golden Age of Comedy’.

The charge for admission is a modest £2.50, which includes beverages and biscuits. The first three attendances are free but when committed it is a rule that members must join the Mosses Community Association. This is housed in the Community Centre, Cecil Street that is close to the Asda town centre store. Many of our members use the ‘Ring and Ride’ service.

Our Facebook site is easily found by browsing. Ring Peter Roscoe 0161 761 6856 for further information.
