 This is the original founding member , current President and self proclaimed Lord Trousers of West Green Common. Known for spreading good cheer, spending ludicrous amounts repairing his 1971 11a Land Rover "Tintin" much to the dismay of the real CEO his missus Teapot. He's the face of the LMC and lifeblood of the organisation. Lord Trousers acquired Tintin from the former owner of the brewery that is the current house that is proudly owned by Trousers and his missus. Never glum always up to mischief , he is always plotting the club's next adventure.

Capt Ratty is a lifelong enthusiast of Land Rovers and in the current festival year, he is the Grand Superintendent of Works at the London Mud Club, he normally campaigns in his Series 3 Land Rover called "Little Blue"  and he has another called "Big Green".  He's a practical person and a doer and he's the best person to have around in a crisis. Also known to be the supplier of GnTs. Usually the sidekick of Trousers on adventures he was bestowed the name after many drinks and a longwinded story to do with Wind in the Willows and the Toad. I leave it to your imagination.
