Welcome back for the new year! As from the 8th Jan meeting, we will be using the Cellar Bar at the Beechwood, in an attempt to create a rather more intimate pub-style atmosphere suitable for a folk session. More details on the 'Latest News' page.
UPDATE: In the end, we stayed put upstairs. Several people who had not seen the cellar bar took a look during the break and Henny then took a vote. 31-3 in favour of remaining in the upstairs lounge was pretty conclusive! So that's where we'll stay unless another local venue can be found. Henny discovered that the nearby Richard Cobden pub hosted Sompting Village Morris on a Wednesday so that would not work. Indeed, there was some concern on their part because a number of the dancers would like to join the SDFS – so could we change our night please?!!
Emily led a very sociable session where we refreshed our knowledge of many of the current canon, including Where Stormy Winds do Blow, Gooch's Beer, Life of a Man, Ebernoe Horn Fair and various others.
