Comments about this page

Hi I was so thrilled to see the photo of The Roamers Concert Party. I am the daughter of Mons Whittington who ran The Portslade Social Club at Portslade Town Hall and the group visited frequently to entertain and were always warmly welcomed. Prior to Portslade Town Hall the club was run from St Phillip`s Church Hove and I well remember all the Brighton and Hove Albion footballers who helped with the ambulances for the more disabled members. I would love to hear from anyone who was in any way connected to Toc H or the club . I now live in Redcar, Cleveland so it is so nice to have these memories surprising me on this site. Best wishes to all and a Happy Christmas
