Thank you Steve.

I don't twitter or facebook, an email address might have been nice on the site.

There are photographs of all the people I mentioned, plus details of the Annual Dinner menus. These are from the scrapbook, which is currently having a sleep at my place of work. I'll try to photograph them or scan them - when I've made a mess of that we'll have to wait until someone with a decent scanner and some skill gets the book. I'm just having a quick flick through first.

The club is still in existance, sharrowcyclingclub.co.uk/aboutus

Nice find Steve makes you wonder how much or if the earlier ones were prettier ?.

I was thinking more on the lines of a blazer pocket badge,

but in this photograph they look to be wearing large lapel badges.

The members of the Sharrow Cycling Club had a very enjoyable ladies' day at Eyam early in July.

There was a delightful lunch at the village hotel, and after that came visits to the various points of interest, including the plague cottages, the stocks and the Cucklett Chine [?], and then the party assembled in the church ...
