Want to get involved?

I’m looking for help with some of the logistics and delivery for this event. Please email me: hello@emilypitts.com if you can offer 4-6 hours of help during March or on the day of the archive event to help set up. Thank you.

Like most KMC members, I’m proud to be part of the club. It’s such a pleasure to read through meet reports, diary entries and other paraphernalia linked to the club and even more of a delight to be able to work with Dave on this event to share the archive for wider viewing.

I look forward to seeing you at the event, sharing your own memories and enjoying the archive alongside members new, old and in-between.
