Quorn Clubs, Societies and Sport

This category encompasses many different village groups, some of which are still thriving such as the Scouts and Guides and the British Legion. Others such as the Temperance Association and the Blooming Rose Lodge of Oddfellows are long gone. Although the sporting clubs, societies and the Quorn Hunt figure prominently, the charities are particularly interesting as they are in the main ancient organisations, such as the Townlands Charity (a major landowner in past times), with a history going back hundreds of years.
