Lowerhouse History: Did you know? Part 5

Thanks for your all your help, but …

From LHCC Secretary’s report, on 1933 season (and every other season):

“The tea room ladies again receive our most sincere thanks for the handsome profit of £38 3s 10d.”  They also didn’t mind accepting a donation from the (short lived) Ladies Cricket Team.

But from the Burnley Express of 3rd February 1934 reporting on the 1933 AGM

“A revolutionary proposal: Mr. T. Redman raised the question of lady members attending the annual meeting, and after some discussion, it was decided that they be permitted to attend future annual meetings, but not be entitled to a vote.”


“Lowerhouse Ladies Whacked.”

Headline from Burnley Express 5th August 1933 reporting on Burnley Ladies v Lowerhouse Ladies:

“The village lasses were again easy prey for the Burnley Ladies.  Perhaps some of the ladies at Lowerhouse are not taking the game as seriously as they might do. There is no royal road to success in cricket, and proficiency is not likely to result from the execution of dance steps and the warbling of popular melodies during practice.”
