Kennet Valley TR Group November Club Night - Talk about the History of the AA in the Thames Valley

Kennet Valley TR Group November Club Night welcomes Roger Day who will speak about the history of 'The AA in the Thames Valley.'.

Roger's interest in motoring history started when he was about 10 years-old and was the result of a visit to the now defunct Cheddar Motor and Transport Museum. The visit inspired him to start collecting and over the years he's gathered together a number of interesting, if unrelated, items of motoring memorabilia. However, about five years ago he decided that his collection would have greater purpose and impact if he concentrated on a theme.

It quickly became apparent that these objects would make the basis of an interesting collection, so the hunt began to track down other AA related items. The process has been interesting and enjoyable and has taught him a great deal about the Association's history.
