The Northumbria Police CHAOS (Climbing Hills and Other Sports!) Club is probably the oldest of the sports sections having been formed in 1974. It is definitely the most appropriately named! Some History; (thanks to ex-Inspector Dave Peart).
The club was formed in the bar of the County Hotel on Gosforth High Street by Dave, Gordon Mew, Larry Trotter & Gavin Aarvold – all names that will be familiar to ex-police cadets of that era.
The spiritual home of the club became the Isle of Skye as it took six attempts to finally complete the traverse of the Cuillin ridge which was nearly as dangerous as being a passenger in the van at the time of the infamous ‘roof rack’ and ‘flying helmet’ incident which was synonymous with the ethos of the club at that time! While the main club activity was climbing and walking the CHAOS club organised a series of biannual ‘madcap’ events to raise money for children with special needs. These events raised the profile of the club, the force and considerable sums of money.
