AbstractThe collection comprises administrative records of the Long Eaton Conservative Club, a subscription social club. The records include minutes of monthly committee meetings and annual general meeting minutes.
Access ConditionsAlthough most of the collection is open to all readers some restrictions have been placed on later accessions. Giving advanced notice of using the collection is advisable.
Admin HistoryThe Long Eaton Conservative Club was established in 1888 at 2, Regent Street, Long Eaton, Derbyshire. The club was a social club to which members paying subscriptions could belong. A portion of these subscriptions went to the Conservative Party. In 1961, the club had a total of 670 members: 523 were paid members while the rest were lapsed, honorary, or in the armed forces. The club provided bars, billiard tables, skittle alleys and organised events. It remained in Regent Street until 1999 when the club closed and the premises became occupied by Brennans, a public house.
Custodial HistoryThe collection was transferred to The University of Nottingham's Department of Manuscripts and Special Collections in 1974.
DescriptionThe collection consists chiefly of administrative records of the Conservative Club. These include minute books of monthly committee meetings and annual general meetings (1888-1964), and accounts and other financial records. There are also membership records of full and temporary members (1888, 1905-1966), two photographs of club officers and committee members (1925, 1947), and files of invoices and correspondence (1960). Unfortunately, many of the early ledgers and minute books are lost or excessively damaged.
