“A big shout out to Peter Townsend who is manager at one of the hidden gems of the city centre, The Bradford Club. For those who don’t know, it’s located up a narrow alley way opposite Waterstone’s book shop in Bradford. Inside is some stunning fixtures and designs from a bygone age. Peter had very generously given us the run of the prestigious snooker room, which holds six full sized tables. We were left very much to our own devices to play our mini championship and with only the gentle clack of cue ball on red (or another colour) it proved to be a very relaxing environment.
There’s much more to see here besides the green baize tables, there is the Bradford historical library, the reading room, the dining area and the small (but comfortable bar). The building dates back to the late 1800s. The building retains such an accurate, historic air, that is was used as a location recently for the closing series of Peaky Blinders.
Aside from the fun the Skills for Life workshop had, this trip out was a birthday treat, it was hugely encouraging to experience the generosity of this city institution, by forging links with our own organisation. What will happen next, we don’t know, but Peter is open to ideas. Thanks again.”
