Colin Anthony lives in South Woodford, London.
Edward Atkins hails from West Sussex where he lives and works in the family business. In his spare time, Edward enjoys playing the banjolele, a relatively new hobby of his, but one that has indeed proven to be equally rewarding.
Other interests also include, reading about the sartorial matters, paying particular attention to detail and upholding traditional values especially in the clothing department, where he enjoys wearing tweeds as often as possible.
Satirical writer/performer 'Atters' Attree is very much the man about town who (when not trailing ladies from each arm) may be found performing his “paranormal” shows or interviewing celebrities for The Chap magazine (as its Editor at Large and “Resident Bounder”). Very occasionally, Atters will attend a First Friday meeting, but it's normally a question of catch-him-if-you can! Visit

Mick Bates, pictured here at Goodwood in one of his outfits that he wore for The Chap magazine. Mick says:

“Along with doing catwalk shows I have also been an artist's model and a nude model appearing in 'maverick arts activist' JoJo's book on Plymouth eccentrics. I also did the test programme for TV on the same subject.

“I am now a retired university lecturer. My hobbies include riding my Harley Davidson, Vintage cars - I own a Jaguar SS 100 - and collecting African and ethnic art. I have also been a drummer appearing on stage at Wavendon, Milton Keynes backing the late Johnny Dankworth.
Jock Blakey died after a long fight with prostate cancer on December 1st 2022. Allan Robinson wrote, “He always took great pleasure and pride in having a distinctive moustache and being around similar people and sharing a drink with them - drink, of course being his other great love. At the time of his death, Jock had been a member of the Handlebar Club for approximately 30 years - although by the end he had joined the ranks of those who sport the blue tie of shame, he had grown a beard. Jock leaves behind his family and his partner Lewis, who, as always, continues to love him very, very much.”
David Dade : “He was always very friendly and interested in people, and in both the Handlebar and Beard Clubs. He was a striking figure, with various moustache ‘arrangements’ and latterly with a beard, but always wearing shorts, summer and winter. He is loved and much missed.”
Mark Boswell lives in Penryn, Cornwall.
Tony Blyth lives on Jersey in the Channel Islands. Anthony says:
