Now the real heroes of this exhibition isn’t the Mods or the Rockers (they come a close second) but its all the brilliant volunteers that worked day and night in the weeks up until the opening to get everything ready! So to John, the two Lindas, Jim, Peter, Mick, Janet and John, Christine, Bill, Chris, Sue, Elaine who worked so hard and did an absolutely fabulous job. Not to mention all the Friends of Margate Museum committee and all the volunteers who have been staffing the exhibition since its been open!
We also had lots of help from local organisations, such as Christine from Thanet on Film who interviewed and filmed the mods and rockers, Greg Ovenden who recorded the sound, Mick Nicholls for lending us his fantastic photographs and Triumph, Thanet Area Scooter Service for the excellent scooter, Matt Homer for the Wild One’s exhibition, the Ace Cafe for some fantastic advice Coventry Transport Museum for some brilliant research and Madam Popoffs gave us some fantastic outfits and not forgetting Nick Dermott!
Really it was a massive group effort and thanks again to all involved.
