"The Coaster" Archive

"The Coaster" was the magazine of the East Sussex District Association of the CTC, and was published annually or bi-annually from 1980 to 2017.

Below are links to scanned copies of the original magazines (in PDF format), including the "South Saxon" (the first Sussex D.A. magazine, published in 1936) and also the Christmas Newsletter from 1979, which was the inspiration for Dennis Jakeman to start "The Coaster"  magazine the following year. 
Dennis edited the magazine for only 2 issues, 1980 & 1981, then John Stevens edited the Summer 1982 issue, before David Rix took over, starting with the Christmas 1982 issue.
David remained in the role until the demise of the magazine in 2017.  During this time the magazine became bi-annual, with a Summer & Christmas edition being produced almost every year, copy permitting.
Unfortunately the advent of the internet and the increasing popularity of on-line articles meant that contributions for a printed magazine began to dry up and, after a few years of producing just a Christmas issue , it was sadly decided that it was no longer.
We hope you enjoy reading through these old issues.
We will gradually be adding to this archive as time permits.
