Re: Brighton May Day 1980 Hastings Coasters and Lincoln Survivors 66 SC


WoW! This brings back memories. I knew Tommy Chetwood, my ex husband was his mate.I remember going to Tommys place and there was a scooter in the front room being repaired, an amazing thing to see in a terraced house!
The "Survivors" certainly didn't begin in 66.
Tommy Chetwood, Richard Todd, Bogey, Ced,Mick Stark? These were the ones who created the club-sorry if I left any-one out.
Its quite sad looking back and sadder even to think that they're no longer involved. I know they were passionate about their scooters and the whole MOD thing.

Well thats what Tommy told us back in 79 and we believed him and why not ? They were the friendliest bunch of lads and lasses you could ever hope to meet .
I can remember Eric Hall, Geoff Fagg, Jane Burns and a girl called [sign in to see URL] nice people ...they ceratinly made us welcome when we went to Lincoln in 1980 for a weekend.

Yep top days they were !!!

I couldn't agree with you more, they really were great guys and gals. I wonder if Tommy was thinking about 1 of our members (had a Vespa) and was an original MOD back in the day.
Anyone go to the George and Dragon pub (can't remember name of road)thats were we used to go-great times ;-)

I remember the Lincoln lot dragging us down some Crypt like pub and then to some club above a pub in the town centre but I cant remember what it was called. They really showed us what Northern Soul was all [sign in to see URL] which im forever [sign in to see URL] came home with shitloads of Northern singles and albums that they gave us ...thats how genreous they all were.
Eric Hall is a legend down here and always will be ...great people all of them

 emoticon Back again. I definatly know the name of the "crypt"- Cornhill Vaults, many a time I got a little Pi****. Back in the late 70's there will be 2 different groups of people down there, one group were into rock, prog rock.....
the others were scooter lads and lasses with a heavy presence of Northern Soul fanatics.
For me it all began at the "Anersley Hotel" (can't remember how it was spelt) it played a lot of Northern Soul and I was hooked, I went with one of my school friends, her brother and his mates and thats how I met my ex husband ( Richard Todd), despite everything he was a great paint sprayer and did some fabulous customised jobs on scooters. At one point in our back garden we had 5 Lambs and 2 in the shed- rather sad but he was never the same after the crash.
I could tell some tales of when Quadrophenia came out-interesting times.

Hi Windy not sure if this string is still live, but I was a member of the 'Stylists' back in the day, from memory we used to meet up in Southbourne in Bournemouth.
