Nick Tate Club


Carole Abbs was part of the committee of a Star Trek convention, Terracon, in Leeds in October 1976. She invited Nick to the convention. Nick agreed that Carole could run his fan club, the British Nick Tate Club. The first newsletter was Spring 1977. Since 1978 it was run by Eileen Skidmore and Phyl Proctor. The club was renamed to the International Nick Tate Club. Eileen and Phyl continued to produce quarterly newsletters for 39 years. Nick Tate regularly sent news updates about his career and family. Eileen died in 2014. Phyl produced the last newsletter, number 145, in 2015. She died in 2018.
