ROYAL SAILORS' REST HALL

On Wednesday April 6th 1960 the foundation stone was laid of the Royal Sailors' Rest Hall in Poole Park Road, Barne Barton, Saint Budeaux.  This was on what was at that time a Naval housing estate.  The Hall was designed by Mr V C L Saunders and constructed by Messrs Hill & Lang, of Plymouth.  It could seat 200 people.

Commodore I W T Beloe, Commodore of the Royal Naval Barracks, performed the ceremony, during which he was presented with the silver trowel.  The stone came from quarries at Kitley, near Newton Ferrers, South Devon.
