Past Times ~ by Brian Jorgensen

"Past Times" SWCC 1964 - 1976 by Brian Jorgensen,

"Hi - You won't know me, I was an active member of the SWCC in 60's and 70's. I shared the years with Pete Francis, Judy/ Mick Day, John Harvey,
Steve West, Harvey Lomas, Pete Cardy, Paddy/Sue O'Reilly, Terry Moon, Jem/Terri Rowlands et al.

I am beginning to sort out old photographs etc and I was wondering if you might be be interested in using some of them for club records/display.
It will take me some time to go through them all and I am thinking that maybe I could send some to you via email from time to time, you can decide if you want to use them.

Please pass on my regards to any of the older members. Regards, Brian" ~ How could we refuse - yes please! Below is what Brian kindly send us in 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011
