Since 1918

Serving the ex-service community for over 90 years.

Our History

In 1918 some of the local men returning from World War 1 banded together and began holding meetings in a building situated on the open air skating rink in Liverpool Road, Ashfield, where the Ashfield public school now stands.

As the members attending these meetings grew, it was necessary to find larger accommodations.

The members of the School of Arts offered a room above the library and the meetings were held there until 1945.

As men returned from World War II, the membership increased and the School of Arts room became too small for meetings.

Over the years, funds had been raised and the purchase of a building of their own was possible with some help from the bank. The first stage of our present building was completed in 1955.

On the 12th of March 1955, an official opening ceremony was held and the new building began occupancy.

Later in 1955, the Ashfield Sub-Branch Club was officially formed and an application for a Club licence was made and later granted by the Licencing Court. The first licensee was George Constable.

By 1958 it became apparent the current premises were too small once again, so plans were drawn up and, with the aid of a bank loan and a loan of $40000 from the Sub-Branch savings, extensions were completed and officially opened on the 3rd February, 1962.

On 14th November 1972, the Club was incorporated as a Company Limited by Guarantee.

In 1981 major extensions were completed and the addition of a Bistro, Dining Room and a new Foyer, again improved trading.

Further renovations were completed in 1990, 1992 and 2011, and included extensions to the southern side of the premises. These renovations also included the addition of an alfresco gaming and smoking area.
