The Sherlock Holmes Society of London


The Gold Bats of the P G Wodehouse Society

2001 – 2010

On Sunday 20th June, at West Wycombe cricket ground, the Society’s cricket team took on the Gold Bats of the P. G. Wodehouse Society in the 10th anniversary match of this famous fixture.

During the lunch interval, a commemorative brochure entitled Wycombe Wonders was launched and distributed to players and supporters of both sides.  Written by Nick Utechin, with a Foreword by team captain Peter Horrocks, it tells a tale of cricketing adventures, disasters and occasional glories, charting the eight matches played up to 2010 (there was too much rain in 2007).  It is a bucolic and not wholly serious addition to the Society's publishing catalogue – an item that deserved a wide readership (and you don't need to understand the official cricket rules of 1895 to appreciate the dramas).

It was published under the auspices of Bob Ellis in an edition of 221B unnumbered copies and is beautifully illustrated.

It could be that if you buy this enticing little booklet, it might impel you to come to the next match to enjoy the atmosphere, the sun, the camaraderie and the bottles!

Overseas members of the Sherlock Holmes Society of London have always needed to pay higher subscription rates than UK based members to cover the extra cost of postage and packaging for mailing the Sherlock Holmes Journal outside the UK. The Society is now changing the way it presents its membership prices so that the subscription is the same for UK and non-UK members, but the additional postage and packaging that are associated with overseas membership is now added on as a separate postage cost.

If you are looking to buy membership as a gift or multiple memberships, or if you experience difficulty with applying online, please contact the Membership Secretary: membership@sherlock-holmes.org.uk.
