In the same year that our Farnham adventure occurred we made several trips to the South Coast to ride courses in Sussex and Hampshire. One such place that we booked through our tried and trusted NCU Handbook in Bognor turned out to be rooms above a Funeral Parlour. This gave us another uneasy nights sleep and in fact in the morning we all overslept and missed the intended event.
|Cycling digs in Christchurch - Eltham 'Paragon' John|
The above picture is one of the better addresses we stayed at. It was in Christchurch and belonged to a retired actress. The place was full of the ladies stage costumes and great fun was had with the various outfits. I suppose you could say that this was our first contact with a “Dragstrip’. The ghostly figures at the upstairs window are my Eltham Paragon Colleagues.
