Re: Baden Powell awards 1988

I was in your Flashback photo regarding the Baden Powell Awards (EADT, October 6).

I am Loveday Glenn but am now Loveday Loveridge and live in Leeds with three children. My two daughters are now in the Guiding movement.

Re: Flashback/Magic Memories

Your photo shows one my predecessors as mayor of St Edmundsbury (not Bury). The picture of Peter Rudge (planting a tree to officially open Kingfishers) was only six days after he became mayor for the year 1989-1990.

Re: The Beaujolais Nouveau Run November 1981

Thanks for reviving the memories. The six team members in the photograph are (left to right) Andy Clover and Graham Avery, Tim Stock and the proprietor of The Naked Grape, Rod Wise and Bruce Sangster.

We entered three cars in the run to bring the first bottles of Beaujolais Nouveau back to Ipswich after its release by the vinery in Beaune at midnight. We all drove through the night and celebrated back in town at first light at the wine wholesalers down by the wet dock. The three cars taking part were a Mercedes V8 SD a BMW V8 7 Series and an Aston Martin Vantage V12. One of the three teams was unfortunately delayed temporarily by the Dover police and issued with a speeding ticket – the French police were far more tolerant in those days!

Re: Pool players at White Hart, Otley

My husband of 45 years, Tommy Cain, is pictured on the extreme left-hand side of the attached photo (with dark curly hair) and the guy on the extreme right is Steven (Jessie) James, but my husband cannot remember the names of the other guys.

He believes that it was a 24-hour charity pool match. My husband played pool at the Barley Mow, Witnesham; Otley White Hart and “Half Moon”, Swilland, which is now known as the Moon and Mushroom and some of these guys were part of the Barley Mow team.
