I am sure regular visitors to Hove Edge club will never be able to recall a time when so many people worked behind the bar.

But many I am sure be able to remember many of these members and officials of the club. The photograph was taken in December 1991, the occasion was the celebration of the new bar being completed and opened.

Sadly many of the people in the photograph have passed on but thanks to David Berry and Mary Hudson we can name almost everyone.

From left to right: Leonard Berry, Brian Barstow, Peter Hawtin, Malcolm Maughan, Joan Craven, Roy Harrison, Barbara Collins, Malcolm Clay, Elizabeth Wright, Unknown, Malcolm Yardley, Walter Clay, Unknown and Eric Aldridge.

The unknown people in the group they are believed to have been two of the workers involved in the alterations.
