The Domino Club

The Domino Club was an idea created by Mr Abby Farrah and set up with the help of Save the Children.
Mr. Farrah saw the need for the children of the Thompson Street and the surrounding areas to have somewhere to go to play and to learn to live and work together.

The Club only ran from 1947 to 1951 but it is remembered with great affection by all who were involved in it.
Lyn Ahmed writes ‘Your whole life revolved around the ‘club’. You had lots of attention. There were no favourites, no unhappy memories, only excitement.’
Maureen Land writes ‘You name them, they were there at the Domino Club. We were the League of Nations.'
