I remember Mike Estlick.I remember Mike Estlick before the Solent scooter club!! When he was a member with me of the Trendsetters scooter club in Fareham along with Nigel Rawson, Pete Hockley. We met at the youth club at St Anne’s school, Fareham. Does anyone remember that!!! Attached is a copy of my scooter in those days

Keith Purnells new Lammy



Did you know Nigel Rawson? He owns the flower shop in Fareham now near Trinity Church. I remember Ned Newman in the days at the wimpy bar in Fareham, he was always good for a laugh! I have attached a photo of my latest baby, trying to relive the good old days!! I will keep in touch with anything I can send. I remember taking Mike Estlick many times on the back of my bike to various rallies on a Sunday we always met outside Raffs or in those days Lawton & Willsons. Happy days.
