The Girls Dinner club was a service run exclusively for young women. At a time when women earned less than ten shillings a week it provided a place where women working locally could access a cheap midday meal in a safe environment. After eating the girls could talk, knit or even sing. They were also encouraged to return two evenings a week for singing and dancing.
