1989

The club celebrated its 10th anniversary by having big upheavals in its management. Mike Stevens stood down in April, following which the club acquired an actual proper constitution with  a Chairman, Secretary, AGMs and all that serious stuff. The constitution is available here . Den and Lyn Smith became secretary and treasurer and ran the show until November when Dany Dalley took over as secretary, assisted by Alb Dalley as the treasurer.

This year saw the club's one and only venture into larger scale concert promotion with the appearance of the Gregson and Collister Band at the civic centre. Sheila Robson, the features writer for the Spalding Guardian and a long-time supporter of the club, wrote a history of the last ten years which you can see here.  Plus we had regular mentions in the local paper thanks to Dave Houlden (month by month links below)
