The Robertsonís Golly Guide [2nd Edition] on CD-ROM by Colin Dodds.
Available December 2006 continuing throughout 2008
Four years of further research have added hundreds of items to the listings. There are now over 4200 colour illustrations. Many sections have been expanded to make this the most comprehensive guide yet for anything to do with the Robertsonís Golly. All the badges are covered in great detail, including new badges and new back stamp pictures. China, figurines, toys, tokens, prototypes and other promotional products are all covered in depth. The very rare prototypes that sometimes come up on ebay are also included, so youíll know when they are genuine. It also incorporates Checklist 5 with fully detailed tables. As before, this software is sold with a single user licence and will run on any modern PC with Windows.
Jerry Loader needs no introduction to most. In 2000 he exhibited a part of his comprehensive Robertson's Golly memorabilia collection at Paisley Museum, issued a Robertson's approved Golly badge to commemorate the event, is found at Quorn Swapmeet each year (almost) without fail and of course, has the largest collection of Golly memorabilia known. Many of us have known that he has aimed to bring out a book with the most comprehensive, accurate, concise account of the badges and history that he possibly can. I have read and reviewed it.

After 13 years of running the club, Keith Wilkinson stopped producing the newsletters in 2004. The club was responsible for producing one of the most collectable badges from the 1990's (picured right).
