Barry Care gave the Archive the following list which was taken from Arnold Woodley's notebook. He was recording the first year dancers danced in his side and said:-
"Arnold Woodley kept records in the 1970s. After Arnold's death I rescued an old exercise book with the list in it: dates of dancers first appearance at Whitsun in his team.
"1970: Alec Wixey, Colin Knight, Robin Connaughton, Bernie Basson, Andrew Carruthers, Colin Bathe, Jim Townsend (after Whitsun).
"1971: Fred Scott, Anthony Collett. Andrew Bathe, Mike Bowden, Clive Tanner, Graham Cook, Richard Buckingham.
"1972: Matt Carruthers, Nick Carruthers, Trevor Hewett, Martin Hewett, John Titchener (cake man), Fred Fowler (collector). "1973: Paul Wixey, Matthew Green, Julian Fidler, Geoffrey Adams, Colin Leach,Charlie Buckingham (fool), Johnnie Buckingham (ragman), Alistair Cook.
"1974: Lawrence Adams, Malcolm Willis, Ken Adams (cake man), Don Fidler (cake man), John Pearman (fiddle). 1975: Andrew Pearman.
List ends there. Interesting to see many went on to dance in Mathew Green's team
