On this day – January, 4th 1967
The Montego Club in Whitmore Reans was investigated after reports of drug peddling and soliciting for prostitution.
The first multi-racial club in Whitmore Reans
The building was the home to the St Andrews Boys School in Coleman Street Whitmore Reans.
For a time, it became the premises for Barford & Newitt printers.
Later, two prominent members of Wolverhampton’s Labour Party leased the property to use it for a new local club.
The aim of the Montego Club
The club was set up to promote better understanding between white and black people in the local area, to improve community integration.
Unfortunately, the club closed it’s doors soon after the investigation.
