SEA URCHINS 100 (1921 – 2021)
The Club celebrates its 100th year in 2021, and the SU100 Committee have been working on events, the main ones being a Celebration Service in St Nicholas’ Church on 4 September; the President’s Picnic at the National Memorial Arboretum on 25 September and the 100th Annual Dinner on 26 November. Further details will be advised when finalised.
We submitted a bid for funds to the National Lottery Heritage Fund to help us celebrate our Centenary in 2021 and in particular to research and publish a book about the Club and our Past Presidents as well as engaging people in the maritime heritage of Liverpool and Naval cultural traditions.
I am very pleased to announce that our submission was successful and we have been working on the project. We are most grateful to them and to the people and organisations that supported the submission. The Book “Hold Fast” was published in February. Over 400 copies were distributed and a digital version is now on this website.
