Hello , I just read the post from Richard Browne about his time on the STA schooners, Sir Winston Churchill and Malcolm Miller. Richard may be interested in the following facebook page : https://www.facebook.com/groups/30680956784. We have annual reunions in Portsmouth in Octobers. Some old folk are still about, including Captain Barry Swindells. I would be very thankful, if you could forward this message to him.
Nice to meet some of the Potterers yesterday. Not a bad 18 mile round trip ride. That was enough considering the temperature. Hope to see you next Wednesday at The Alma....IF I can manage the hill !!!
Hello Tony Brown We'd be glad to welcome you along to any of our 'meets.' We start arriving at around midday and normally have a snack and a chat up to around 2pm. You'll easily find a cluster of us around a table, just come up and say Hello. Regards Stephen (club secretary)
Hope to join u on Wednesday. Cycle weather permitting from Seasalter otherwise car. Two of us . Andy Brown (We are not related just neighbours) and myself. If that's OK
PS..... My comment below was maybe unclear.
We welcome any non-members who turn up at a "Meet", as we do for any cyclist or e-cyclist. We don't expect you to pay a membership fee. Well, maybe after several Meets we might !!!
Just to let everyone know that I replied to Nick Charlesworth's enquiry (below) on the same day by email. Any others who are curious about us and have a similar query to Nick. Then just turn up. I've forgotten the membership fee. Well less than a tenner, anyway. And you get Colin's Pottering Around quarterly mag. And you can put our sticker on your bike. Or wherever else you want to stick it. And our social calendar shall welcome you with open arms. And the kudos of being a member of a historic (?) Kent cycling club. Almost a half century old.
Hi There, Do I need to join to come to e Meet or can I turn up to one and give it a try? Nick
How does one join?
Many thanks Hugh for inviting us to your ride on 17th and to Peta for a fabulous lunch at your beach hut. Can somebody please tell me how I can become a member?
Many thanks, Jonathan
Hi, I hope you don't mind us contacting you, but we are hosting a new Sportive in Lingfield, Kent called The Kent Climber on 21st July and wanted to offer those clubs based in and around Kent a 50% discount on the entry fee making it only £8/£10 to enter. If it is possible, would you be able to forward this discount onto your club members please. We have a big following of our sportives in Hertfordshire, Essex and Suffolk and wanted to offer something different to our usual crowd and break out of our usual areas.
The discount code can be entered at the checkout and is KENTCC50
More information and to sign up: www.sportiveuk.co.uk
Many thanks and hope to see some of your members there.

Ignore the message from Scott Matthews, below. It is spam sent to websites' contact addresses. It's an advert for a spell checking website. A feckin timewaster.
I thought you would like to know, it looks like you've misspelled the word "Catagory" on your website. Silly mistakes can ruin your site's credibility. In the past I've used a tool like SpellingScan.com to keep mistakes off my website.

Hi there! What would a huge increase in relevant traffic mean for your business? If I could greatly increase the number of customers who are interested in your products and services, wouldn't you be interested?
Nice to meet you today Peter.
I am contacting you from the Lodge at Prince’s in Sandwich Bay. We welcome cyclists in our Bar/Lounge & terrace and are open every day. Please let me know if you would like any further details. Thanks, Ali
what is your address in dover?
Hello Pete, suggest the "Royal Oak" Nonington as a Thursday venue

Hi. We don't know much about cycling. We both live in Canterbury and have got electric bikes and enjoy shortish rides on dry days. We're not beer drinkers and don't usually stop at pubs. Will you still talk to us ? :-)
Had to do it on computer using Microsoft Paint. Took me a couple of hours then found out couldn’t rotate text cept for 90 degrees. Thought it’ll do for now. Perhaps someones grandchild or great grand embryo could do it. Beyond me....
Looks OK, what was the problem with the badge?
Should be Sunday 25 Feb, not 24th. Apart from that 8/10.
Good to see that "The Haywain" has returned to Bramling
Sounds good. Look forward to meeting up soon.
I am a keen local cyclist. Recently retired, living in Canterbury. I enjoy pub stops on my rides. Ok if I pop along to one of the meets? Possibly the Freewheeler on 21 Feb?
