Union Street is a place that has undergone massive change in recent years and you may have noticed that the building once occupied by Feneck’s Military Tailors is now home to Sloggett & Son, ‘Seller of Interesting Things’. Last year I was reading an article about the shop, which sells a range of vintage and antique furniture and homeware, when I realised a possible connection with Plymouth Argaum.
It's just about 60 years ago that Argaum started work on building the clubhouse. With the help of donations, an RFU loan and an awful lot of hard work the club were in possession of their own facilities for the first time in their history, a facility the envy of many at the time.
Communication within the club has always been important, whether to publicise events, welcome new members or recognize achievements on and off the field. In the pre-internet days this generally took the form of newsletters and Argaum had their own internal newspaper, albeit on a very occasional basis, The Argus.
