I have been musing about my insomniacal thoughts mentioned in a blog last week and have decided that an attempt should be made to produce a history of Brighton Lions Club. Having in my possession a few copies of Jungle Jottings, the club newsletter, dating from 1952 (in one case) and 1969/70, I have already found a few interesting snippets. Tickets for Charter Night in May 1970 cost 50/- (fifty shillings = two pounds ten shillings = two pounds 50p). This year we paid £26 - just over ten times as much. I wonder what the average wage was then compared to now?
