Despite my enforced absence we held on to our top spot in the Age-Graded team competition – a tribute to our ageing strength in depth! Congratulations all round.
Finally thanks to our dear Fred Pearce and Dave Evans we’ve access to an archive of images from the past, which i’ll explain in a future post. For now I couldn’t resist putting up this group photo from 70 years ago taken outside our grand headquarters at the Midland Hotel, West Didsbury.
