About the employer

Ramsey Club Company Ltd

The formation of Ramsey Club took place in 1922.  The so called “Gentleman’s” Club was located in premises in Great Whyte and consisted of a bar, a billiard table and a card room. It was all very comfortable and the floor was even raised to allow members to sit and watch the billiards. Shares were issued and Directors elected. The first AGM was held in January 1924 when it was agreed that the entire management and control of the Club should be entrusted to a Committee of nine members who are Directors for the time being of the Ramsey Club Company Ltd.
