Shirley Late Knights AKA Shirley 41 Club
Shirley Late Knights

Treasurer : Tony Silman
Shirley Late Knights is the registered name for Shirley 41 Club, and we meet regularly every first
Thursday of the month. Our main meeting place is the St. John's Hotel in Solihull.
Our club was formed in about 1960 by those members of Shirley Round Table who had already had
to "move on" due to the age rule. Shirley Round Table itself had only formed in 1955 but by now
was a thriving organisation.
The 41'ers applied for affiliation to the 41 Club Organisation and this was granted on 24th April
From then on the members have maintained a strong Club and forged an extremely good
relationship with Shirley Round Table, and all members are (mostly!!) welcome at any of their
meetings. There is usually the odd bit of helpful encouragement at their business meetings, often
revolving around the phrase "it wasn't like this in MY day!"
Who are we?
We are a Club with about 40
odd (very odd!) members who
meet regularly once a month
for speaker meetings, the
occasional devious quiz,
discussions, outside meetings,
barbeques in the summer, and
generally trying to keep
Shirley Round Table in order.
