Our club will be sixty years old in April 2013. Penryn Federation in the past had a membership of over 100 members.

Penryn Federation was initially part of the Federation of old age pensioners a lobby group set up at the beginning of the 20th century to fight for the rights of old age pensioner’s, i.e. heating, pension and decent homes.

The majority of the Federation group’s saw a decline in members some 8-10 years ago. There are other Federation groups in Cornwall one is in maker & Rame and the other is in the West of Cornwall.

Past Chairman’s have been Gwen, Bedford Daniel, and Mr B D Williams who started the group back in 1953.
