Brooklands Golden Anniversary

Founder Members of the Section. From L to R: Malcolm Nash, Frank Thurlow, John Hodges, Pat Davy, David Williams, Ann Davy, Ian Thompson and Eddie Webster

The Section recently celebrated the 50th Anniversary of its first meeting at the 'Hand and Spear' Hotel on March 18th 1969 with a BBQ for members at the Brooklands Club House. Over 50 members and partners attended, including a group of eight of the original founders. There were some special bikes on show too, including Eddie Webster's very rare 1921 Martynside V-twin which was built just down the road in Woking. Not only was there a BBQ but also a magnificent cake in the shape of a Brooklands 'can' along with specially commissioned badges and neck tubes for everyone attending. A great day out for everyone who attended, and special thanks to those founding members who travelled a long way to be there.
