Darwen Trials Club - Affiliated to the NWC ACU Ltd

According to a yearbook recently seen by a member, the club has existed in one form or another for approaching 70 years,  "Primarily a Social Club, the Darwen and District Motor Cycle and Car Club was founded in 1949. There was a club in Darwen in pre-war years but little was know about it, and therefore the present club is in effect a new venture." A scan of the complete page appears below.
