6th December

Life member, Tony Gammon, who will celebrate his 81st Birthday on 1st January, has dug up some black and white negatives from the 1950’s. Tony does not feature in the photos because he took them but he certainly captured an exciting period in the Club’s history. Cars were a luxury in those days and two wheels was the means of spreading your wings and seeing new places.

Tony says ” I cannot remember all the names in the photos but amongst them are Dai Plaza (Runs Captain), Jack Sheppard (Chairman), Marilyn Hammond (married Graham Jenkins), Bronwen Derham, Billy Jones, Ken Williams and Ann Watkins (who married and emigrated to Australia), Lyn Clark, the Brooks brothers and Jimmy Morris whose family owned a butchery business in Pentre.”

More of Tony’s pictures can be seen in the Photo Gallery. Perhaps our older members will be able to identify some of the riders who include a young Gwyn Humphreys in racing mode.
