Prior to the Keystone Club being at the Rockingham Road venue, it was in the late 60's the Italian Club. Many Italians were in Kettering then and this was their main venue. I may be mistaken but I recall going to the Keystone Club in the early 60's when it was at the Vine public house in Rockingham Rd.,roughly where Sainsbury is today. It was a straw thatched building with nooks and crannies in every room. Can anyone throw more light on this building?

Rawhide: The Italian club was late 50s not 60s.
It was The Hare + Hounds, not The Vine; The Vine was still in use when the Boys Club was in the Hare + Hounds. Also the roof was slate not thatch.

Can anyone help?

The above comments seem to speak of different times to those I remember.  Keystone Boys Club is what I remember of the large house set back near to Duke St.   My main memory concerns the bonding of the club I was leader of at the time (Inverness QOCH Boys Club).  I visited a number of times and a strong bond was formed between boys of both clubs.    I imagine it has disappeared like so many excellent Boys Clubs did when we all went equal opportunities some years ago.

Reply please if you have any information
