It is with much regret that I have to report the sad passing of Janet Peckham on the 3rd January at the age of 88 after a short illness. Janet and her late husband John were the stalwarts of the Club in the sixties, seventies and eighties and Janet was the only lady ever to hold the Club Chair. A position she held for three years in the late seventies. Along with Sue Redhead, Janet liaised with Citroen UK to create another first for TWMC and the UK. A 2CV Cross in 1977 utilising the car parks at Brands Hatch.
