West Country

Our much missed West Country Branch was founded in 1973 by Peter Wood, newly moved to the area, who started off as both Club Secretary and Treasurer. Based in Somerset, the Branch met at various venues including Taunton, Bath, and latterly at The Conservative Club in Keynsham High Street, where meetings took place on Sundays from 2.00pm-5.00pm.

Lea Valley Cigarette Card Club

Secretary: Debbie Fishere-mail: fisherfam@waitrose.com Tel. 07501 854006 Greetings to all card collectors in the Lea Valley area. Ours is a site which has changed an amazing amount through the centuries, and it's history is strangely summarised by its moving from a rural village with a tiny river trickling beneath overhanging foliage, and then that river eventually flowing into the great Thames. For this was an area entirely changed by the Industrial Revolution, and has even hosted
