Tipton Archives - A Plea (31/08/2018)

Tipton Wanted Cartoon

 Tipton Harriers are trying to gather a full set of programmes for a number of major cross country, road and track & field championship events held over many years.

The reason for asking is to fill in large gaps in our knowledge as to who was competing for the club and their county at that time along with details of any officials from the club who may have been “on duty” at the events.

We would like to ask members & friends of the club if they have any of the following that they would be prepared to donate to the club for our archives.

Please check in your collections and see if you have a copy that you would be prepared to donate to the club.

If you do not want to donate them BUT are willing to loan a copy for us to extract the material we need then also get in touch.

For some of the years listed the event may have yet to be staged or was no longer being staged. We just do not know.
