IT WAS a very debon-hair occasion when a moustache club met in Hampshire.

The Handlebar Club had a very hirsute gathering when they held their Annual General Meeting in Winchester on Saturday.

The meeting saw gents from Switzerland, Belgium, Germany and Sweden joining UK members dressed in dapper suits flaunting their moustaches.

Established London in 1947, the only criteria for joining the Handlebar Club is to have “a hirsute appendage of the upper lip, with graspable extremities”.

The annual meeting is a social event for club members with a passion for upper lip hair to come together and celebrate their handlebar moustaches.
