A Potted History
Lichfield 41 club was formed in 1954 and since that time has become, and remains, a home for ex members of Round Table from the two original Lichfield Round Table Clubs who choose to meet and work together in a continuation of the fellowship which their Table life brought them.
It is one of the larger clubs affiliated to The Association of Ex-Tablers’ Clubs which has a national membership of some 14,500 men aged 45 and above

The club meets every 28 days at the Whittington Heath Golf Club for a meal followed by a short business meeting sometimes including a speaker. On alternate bi-weekly Wednesday’s each month members also meet informally at a local pub just for a pint and some gossip.
There is an active social life. Trips to foreign parts, Velo (cycle) Club, Golf Society, an annual Canal trip with members joining as and when their schedule allows and a Walking (or driving) weekend in Yorkshire. Regular visits are also arranged to local places of interest.
Lichfield 41 Club is not a charitable organisation but despite that each year we raise and distribute monies for local charities.
Since 2016 members no longer need to wear ties at our monthly dinner meetings. Suits or sports jackets remain our requirement, but absolutely no jeans. Bear in mind that this is an option, so if you wish to wear a tie, please do so.
The Clubhouse was relocated during 2020 and is now accessed from Common Lane, near to the MOD Firing Range. Approach the gates slowly and they will open, a Code is required to exit the facility and is available from the Clubhouse.
