The first attempt at producing a history was made by Frank Lindley in the late 60's as part of the 'The Official Handbook' The handbook was updated by Bob Abercromby (Secretary) in 1977 with annother version of 'The Official Handbook". Another attempt was made for the centenary celebrations which were held in 1991. This written history took the form of a brochure. Several books of minutes were found in the loft space above the secretary's office and a start has been made on transcribing them. A number of people have been interviewed. Information has been gleaned from the Hampshire Records Office. Here you will find lists of competitions and names on honours boards.
