Around 1877 the Temperance Society had fund raising events in order to finance the building of a Mission Hall on the Holt, Hillside Rd. It appears the Mission Hall has had through various years, name and slight number changes as the road developed, depending on what directory and census, I'm assuming it was what ended up being the Wellington Club.
1911, Temperance Mission Hall
1916, Samuel Cartlidge & Mrs Constance, Dance
1923, as 1916
1938 Claremont Hall, School of Dance
Later years the Hillside Club and Wellington Club.
Perhaps just coincidental, but I wonder, there was Claremont Villas in Wellington Rd, Wallasey, Did that have any influence on the clubs name?
