Oxford Phab was started in 1981, inititially meeting at Ormerod School, but moved to Wesley Memorial Church after a few meetings and has met there ever since.
The following is a very brief history of the club, and is still being
developed. I hope to hang some pictures and more info off this page later.
Still to go into these pages are several holidays since I joined the club,
plus all that went on before I became a member.
Club founded, initially meeting at the Ormerod School, in September, but moved to Wesley Memorial Church after a few meetings and has met there ever since.
It is affiliated to Phab England which was formed in 1957 as a spin off from the British Association of Youth Clubs.
