Birmingham Inter-Varsity Club

I’ve been an active member of IVC since 1972


 started in the 1950’s as a club for young professional people but now we’re rather older!
For more about the history of IVC see History

I met my wife here (and two of my sisters met their husbands in IVC)

I have always been an active member:
holding various positions within the club including:

  • Membership Secretary,
  • Farmhouse Warden, (I was on the Farmhouse committee for 20 years)
  • Rambles Co-ordinator
  • Vice-President
  • Currently I am the official Archivist (having most bulletins, minutes etc. since 1958)
    (I have had an official position for all but one of the years since 1973 – sub-comittee, main committee, committee assistant, vice-president).

I’ve organised garden croquet every summer since 1987, the occasional ramble, and other events.
I go on several weekends away each year: sometimes organising one.

I have précis of bulletins from the 1960’s

There are pages of information, statistics etc about IVC at Members (this will require a password which is ocasionally sent to members. If you would like access to this please contact me ).
