On Monday 26th July 1926, sixty ladies of Nelson gathered in the afternoon in the Haeremai Room of the building at 296 Trafalgar Street, Nelson City, on the site formerly occupied by the Nelson Institute, for the purpose of inaugurating a Women’s Club.  Present were women from prominent families whose descendants are still here in Nelson today.

Traditions of The Nelson Women’s Club – The Bridge Circle was the first to form in December 1926.  In February 1927 Drama, Garden, Arts and Crafts, French and Literary Circles were formed, and so the life of the Club really got underway.  Today although we no longer have a French Circle, we have added  Mahjong, Genealogy, Fit Club, Art & Artisans and Techno Circles that meet in the day and two circles that along with Literary, meet in the evenings – Friday Friends and Evening Circle.  Drama and Cycling Circles meet ad-hoc.

During the year we hold open club events where all members participate – Club Luncheons, Cocktail Party and Club Christmas Party.
