This photo shows the Worthing Over 21 Club on an annual outing in 1961.

The photo was sent in by Daphne and Frank Butler, of Mill Road, who are both past members of the club.

Daphne said: “Worthing Over 21 Club ran from the 1950s until into the 1980s.

“Meetings were held every Monday evening at the Scout Hut, in High Street.

“Activities at the club included such things as stoolball, bat and trap, indoor hockey, card games, tennis, table tennis and lots more.

“One Monday a month there was also a dance, and on weekends we used to go cycling around Sussex in the summer, or on a walk in the winter.”

Daphne and Frank are curious to know if any past members from the club are still in the area, and if anyone can name the people in the photo.
