After an inaugural meeting at the Clavering Arms Inn, Swalwell, in 1902, the Swalwell Social Club opened at the White House, which was formerly a vicarage. Affiliated to the C.I.U. in 1905, the Club (pictured) moved 6 years later to Taylor's Brewery, adjacent to the present building which was opened in 1939 after being built by the C.W.S. at a cost of £9,000. Success of the Club ensured that it took less than 4 years to clear the initial cost. With its Centenary now past Swalwell Social Club extends a warm welcome to members. The hours of opening are 11am - 3pm (Fridays to Mondays only )and 7pm - 11pm daily and facilities include a games room with snooker table and darts.
The club unfortunately closed in 2010.
