St George Workers Club History
Proud History since 1945
The Club was founded from a meeting held at the Geelong Trades Hall in 1945.
Later that year the Geelong Workers Club, as it was known then, commenced operations in Malop Street, Geelong.
Foremost in its original Statement of Purpose was the objective to provide its members with a sporting, social and recreational environment. This ethos has been maintained throughout the years of the Club’s existence.
The Club proved very successful in its formative years and soon had to find larger premises, which it did in 1957 at Skene Street, Newton.
Further growth and development occurred in 1998 when the Club again relocated, this time to Pakington Street, Geelong West (its current location), where it refurbished the St George Hotel, and the Club changed its name to accommodate the St George Hotel as this hotel has been in operation for over 100 years to the St George Workers Club.
Our new home at 212 Pakington Street is in Geelong’s leading shopping strip, which consists of numerous eateries, supermarkets and speciality shops.
We source local traders as often as we can so we can use them for giveaways and Club the operation needs (eg. bistro repairs and maintenance). This way the Club and it’s members all benefit.
