A SECURITY envelope collector, a telegraph pole enthusiast and a washing machine restorer have all made it into this year’s Dull Men’s Club calendar.
A man who spends ten hours a day doing jigsaws and a student who photographs “wet floor” signs also feature among the top dozen “bores”.
The Club — which has included women since 2017 — has more than 50,000 members, who are passionate about mundane things which others regard as dull.
The calendar celebrates the quirky passions of members in Britain and the US.
The line-up includes James Folta, from New York City, who says he loves the different colours and motifs of the graphic patterns on the inside of security envelopes.
Also featured is Martin Evans, from west Wales, who in 1997 founded the Telegraph Pole Appreciation Society which now has more than 1,000 members.
He said: “Some people appreciate the art of Turner or Constable.
“We appreciate the aesthetic beauty of the poles and their place in our landscape.”
January’s entry is vintage washing machine restorer Lee Maxwell, 90, who has more than 1,100 on display in a museum in Colorado.
