LETTER: Did you belong to Vespa club?

Back in the 1950s, 60s and 70s Sussex played host to a number of scooter clubs; among them the Hastings Vespa Club, Bognor Regis Scooter Club, Brighton Lambretta Club, Mid Sussex Vespa Club and the Worthing Scooter Club.

Did you belong to any of these clubs or any other clubs? If you owned a scooter (of any make or model) during this time then I would like you to help with a book that I am writing on scooter life in Britain between 1950-1975. If you have memories of taking part in club events, national events, even foreign trips then I would like to know. Do you have any photographs or memorabilia that you could share or maybe you even still own your scooter. If you can help then please get in touch, either via e-mail to scootermemories@hotmail.com or via post to: Pete Davies, 95 Grove Road, Blaby, Leicester, LE8 4DH

Thanks in advance.
