Situated in the heart of Buckhurst Hill, Pelly House Members Club (previously known as Buckhurst Hill Sports and Social Club) was founded in 1906 by Fred Pelly.
Fred was born into a wealthy family, and went on to make his own fortune. He cruised the world many times with his wife, Beatrice, bought stately homes in Hampshire, Norfolk and Scotland, and in illustrious philanthropic gestures, funded Pelly House. Fred passed away in 1940,
34 years after he founded Pelly House.
Over the years, Trustees, Committees and Members have worked tirelessly to build upon the foundations which Fred left, in order to keep Pelly House thriving at the heart of the local community.
In recent years, we have undergone major refurbishment programmes and projects, to bring the physical fabric of the building in line with modern day expectations.
We are very proud of what we have achieved as a Club, and the fact that we have had to close our Membership books and introduce a Membership Waiting List, proves that we are doing something right!
As a long-standing Club Member, Russel has the backing of Club Members and acts in the best interests of those using the Club on a daily basis.
