Local Group Report – Easebourne Thursday 19th May 2016
The beer and the bravado were flowing well at The Three Moles in Selham near Midhurst, when the SDFS Easebourne Group met on Thursday night for their monthly sing. We welcomed four new members – Robin and Sue, and Gordon and Debbie – who joined in enthusiastically and brought our total up to 16 singers. We hope they’ll join us again next month on 16th June. After warming our voices with Pleasant and Delightful and O Good Ale we sang another 16 songs plus a version of Ewan MacColl’s Freeborn Man of the Travelling People which our landlady Emma has requested we learn for next time, it being her father’s favourite song! We enjoyed singing the new Kipling songs, namely Oak, Ash and Thorn, Follow Me ’ome, Smuggler’s Song, and Run of the Downs, and followed this by practising many of the songs scheduled for the Sullington Event on the 25th June. You could really hear the difference in our voices once we got back to singing the songs we all know and love! Our thanks to everyone who came along and helped make it a great evening. See you all again soon!
