Winding back the years…

Here are a collection of photographs taken by club members past and present. I’ve tried to keep then in more or less chronological order. Some of the dates have been estimated. If anyone can identify the year, and add any relevant comments/stories/anecdotes, then feel free to email them to me and I’ll add them in!

1980s and early 1990s
