The minutes of the meeting held on January 12th 1965 at the Dorset Arms decided that the club should be called the “Sarnia Walking Club”, narrowly defeating the proposed ” Guernsey Walking Club”. “The Sarnia Woodpeckers WC ” was also proposed.

The club colours were also decided on. The colours to be a yellow and white vest, with the top half yellow, with a Guernsey crest breaking the two colours. The shorts to be emerald.

The next meeting on April 9th 1965 at the same venue, had a proposal that Mrs J H Robert be made a Honorary Member, This was approved by all present.

Letters were received regarding the clubs affiliation to the Race Walking Association and the Amateur Athletics Association.

There was talk of a selection for the Jersey Easter 7 miles walk and mention of St Sampsons School winning the first walk of its kind and taking the SWC Cup.
