Rushden Query Club scrambles to be resumed
Representatives from motor clubs of Finedon, Wellingborough, Kettering, Bedford and Northampton attended the annual dinner and prize presentation of Rushden and District Query Motor Club held at the Masonic Hall, Rushden, last week.
Outstanding news of the evening was the fact that Sunday scrambles will be restarted this year. Over the years the club has raised hundreds of pounds for charities as a result of the scrambles which were originally held at Yelden.
Guests included Coun. and Mrs. P. E. Brown, and Mr. George Brown, the Vincent H.R.D. rider who is shortly to attempt to break the world's motor cycle speed record.
Toasts were proposed and replied to by Mr. R. W. E. Paragreen, Coun. Brown, Mr. Ken Maund, Mr. Eric Roe and Mr. George Brown.
Prizes were presented by Mrs. R. W. E. Paragreen as follows: Risdene time trial, ladies' cup and replica, Mr. A. E. Kilsby; Paragreen cup and replica, Mr. C. Brace; tankards to team members, Messrs. A. E. Kilsby, K. Norman and R Brown.
