13. Are you related to the old Eccentric Club?
|Questions and Answers >>|
When the club’s revival was started in 2007, we were considering creating a brand new club.
However, as our efforts were becoming more noticeable, we have been getting more and more support of the former members of the old club, their families, relatives and friends, many of whom were joining our club, seeing in it the continuation of the old Eccentric Club.
When the last President of the old Eccentric Club, Lord Montagu of Beaulieu, has entrusted us his personal archive of documents related to the old club, he gave us his blessing, and he has fully supported our endeavours since, acknowledging that we are the next chapter of the old Eccentric Club.
In November 2009, His Royal Highness The Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh, has granted us his Royal Patronage and was formally re-elected as our Honorary Life Member.
The old club’s logo and the very words “Eccentric Club” are now the registered trademarks of our club, so there is no other Eccentric Club in the UK.
