The Wotton Discussion Board

Wildcard!

A place where things not fitting above and not directly involving Wotton or humourous, offbeat, "New Year Resolutions" and things that wouldn't be out of place in a chatroom.

Russell Alway from Wotton, is looking for any photos or info on the "first" Synwell Boxing Club venue. Which was held at the Synwell Flower show, on the 15th August 1952. At the Synwell playing field. Russell understands that most of us may be a little too young to remember this event. But we might have older friends or relatives, that can remember.
