History of the Copshaw Clatter
The first Clatter, with Ann Charters as Editor was issued in July 1983. Starting with just two double pages it was only a third of its present size and cost 10p. Eddie Rutherford was the printer using a manual Gestetner in his own home. A small team of enthusiastic supporters, plus his family, helped by collating, stapling, folding and delivering.
