During the racing season we write and submit a report on Monday evening to the Sussex Express and The Courier, covering the activities of our club members over that weekend. Where possible we send a photograph from that weekend, if not we provide a topical one from the archive collection. The papers normally use the material, but do edit and sometimes cut part of the article and they donít always use the photo.

    The Wanderers have a long history of press coverage in the local papers, this goes back to the 1950s. Chris Martin took over the role of Press Secretary in 2006 and taking advantage of the arrival of digital photography and the use of email produced weekly articles, each accompanied by a topical photo. Alan Lloyd produced our press reports between 2010 and 2014. Paget Cohen took over the role in 2015.

    Paget requests that members send him their news items - tell him about your deeds and achievements, whether it be racing, time trialling, off-road, or track. Donít be shy in coming forward and if you can supply a photo, then so much the better. Paget can be contacted via a private message (PM) on the Forum, by email pagetcohen@mail.com or phone 01435 866703. He would like your info by Sunday allowing time to put together his article.
