Staff Clubs & Societies
Our collections include around 200 trophies and awards, plus a range of other items, which tell us of the type of sports and activities going on in the Post Office, and the types of teams and regional organisations in which Post Office people participated.
The earliest trophy dates from 1873 and the most recent trophy was awarded in 1999. Recognition was given for sporting, horticultural and artistic achievement. There are silver-plated cups, large wooden shields, and small metal medallions.
