About The Fairholme Club



The Fairholme Club is a private members club in the heart of Littleover village. It has been in the village since 1928 and at its current location since 1952. The Club has recently gone through a major refurbishment, which has created a very comfortable and modern environment for members and their guest. Although we are a private members club we welcome visitors, so if you wish to visit the club please feel free anytime we are open and ask about membership.

The Club is not just about coming in for a drink, throughout the year we have live entertainment, quizzes, BBQs, beers festivals and indoor sports event such as snooker, darts. cards dominoes etc.. We have both Sky and BT Sport so you can enjoy your favourite sporting events with a pint in the newly refurbished lounge or snooker room. We also organise visit to sporting events. in the last 12 months visits have included Twickenham and Leicester for Rugby, St James Park for Football.

We strive to keep our beer and lagers to a high quality and at affordable prices. We support local breweries across Derby and Derbyshire, as well as favourite British ales. At any time we have a great selection of real ales, bottled beers, continental lager, a varied selection of spirits and wines.

In 2016 the Club worked with Browns to help develop a fantastic restaurant, which occupies the first floor of the building. This has further enhanced what is on offer at the Fairholme Club. If you are visiting Browns feel free to pop in the Club for a drink before or after your meal.

History




The “Assembly Hall Social Club” as it was then known was formed in 1928 by four local people, one of whom was the then landlord of the local hostelry the “Half Moon”, in premises next door to the “Half Moon” over what is now a butcher’s shop and flower shop. It continued to be known as such until April 1954 when the name was changed to “Fairholme Club.” The “Fairholme” being the name of the house the club had moved to in October 1952.In its present form the Fairholme is a unique and happy “Village” (if you can still call Littleover a village) club, unaffiliated to any other body, a point which outsiders find difficult to understand.

The building was purchased in October 1952 for £4500.00, on the death of the then owner a Mr Thurlby, a solicitor, who lived there with his housekeeper. The decision to buy was made by the committee in February 1952 using £2000.00 saved during and after the war in “War Bonds” and a temporary overdraft with Barclays Bank of £3000.00 until a suitable Mortgage could be arranged.nThis was eventually secured with the Co-operative Building Society for £2660.00, repayable at a rate of £17.85 per month over 20 years.Want to read more into our History?
