"Miss Crawley given Mod makeover" (or so they think – oh dear!!!)

'This is Sussex' reports that, “The town's most beautiful woman was given a mod-style makeover to promote a scooter club's 30th anniversary.

Nicole Aitken-Smith, who was recently crowned Miss Crawley 2013, was invited to Central Sussex College for a makeover and fashion shoot.

The 17-year-old, of Blackheath in Pound Hill, was dressed in 1960s attire by the college's fashion students after being given a makeover by its beauty students.

Photography students then took pictures of her posing with a vintage 1959 Lambretta, which had been restored.

The Last Great Act of Defiance Scooter Club's 30th Anniversary reunion is being held at Goff's Park Social Club on November 9.

There will be live music, with mod gods The Scene taking centre stage and Distant Echo in support. DJs English Karl, Gary Crickmore, Carl Skalistic and Mark Bailey will spin some vinyl on the night as well.

The club was born out of the great 80s mod revival and has remained true to its mod roots. Sporting Breton caps and belts, the 200 or so that made up a 'Defiance' pack were a regular sight at all-dayers, all-nighters and of course the obligatory weekenders.

Now the club is celebrating 30 years and wants former members to get back in touch.

Gerard James, one of the founding members, said: "It would be great to hear from some of the old 'uns – better if they want to come along."

He added that it won't be quite an all-nighter, finishing at 2am, saying: "Well, we have been going 30 years."

Tickets for the reunion, which starts at 7.30pm, are £10 in advance and can be bought from the social club, or £12 on the door.”
