The photograph above, taken in the Durham Hall, dates to 1959. It shows the members and leaders of the Largo St David's Church 'Saturday Klub'. Meeting on Saturdays at 7pm, the club was run by and for teenagers. Leaders included the John Mack and Mr Watt (not to be confused with Rev. George Watt, pictured below, the minister at St David's between 1956 and 1963).
The club offered a range of indoor games including badminton and table tennis. There was a club record-player for listening to or for dancing to. The church magazine of the time said that "the Club ensures a happy and care-free evening for all who come along" and that "there is always a cup of tea to be had during the course of the evening".
One event run by the club, as a fund raiser and open to the wider Church congregation, was a "Beatle Drive". This being a time when the group "The Beatles" were hugely popular, the evening was a variation on the usual Beetle Drive. The hall was decorated for the event with "approximately 250 pictures of The Beatles"! The background music for the evening was of course a "certain four men". So successful was the event that it was repeated a few weeks later. If you see someone you know in the photo, please comment.
