SEA URCHINS 100 (1921 – 2021)
The Club will celebrate its 100th year in 2021 and a Committee has been formed to prepare for this.
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.
Now the hard work starts!
SEA URCHINS BOOK
This is not just aimed at Past Presidents but also at all members as once the book is finished and on the website with all our research material, we have said that we will ask all our members to contribute as well, so that we have a continuing tale of Sea Urchin’s maritime heritage. This will also go onto our website.
The book is now 99% complete and due to be sent to the Designers and Printers mid December 2020.
SERVICE OF CELEBRATION
We are working on a Service at St Nicholas’ Church to celebrate the Centenary to be held in May 2021 followed by a Reception. Details will be promulgated when finalised.
SU 100 COMMEMORATIVE ITEMS
A number of items have already been made and/or purchased and a brochure has been sent out to Members. This includes our own “1921 Reserve” Gin!
