Ray Cobbett interview: Wimbledon Society

When did you join the Wimbledon Society?

I’m sure I was a member way back when I lived in Wimbledon in the 60s and then having moved, my interest lapsed. But what got me back into the Society was writing my life history and checking the society’s records for some facts. I hadn’t any intention of doing any biographical work but my daughter said: I should as I had lived though a war, served my country, become for a time a local Hampshire politician and had a successful business career and wrote a lot.
