Hi Folks,
This is just to forward this nice note of appreciation from Bryan and to thank once again those who made the effort to contribute in whatever way they could, including those who were only able to give their good wishes for a successful evening.
You will be pleased to know that it was a successful service and evening, we even managed to open Jonathon's eyes (and his jaw), to the joys of folk music, and we had a thoroughly enjoyable evening back at the Drum.  Roger, Elvina, Dannie and I were really quite surprised at just how late we left and what an enjoyable sing we had in the pub as well!!
I shall be there on Thursday to run the evening, even if it will be after a quick dash back from Broadstairs watching "Three Sheets to the Wind" at the sailing club so I hope we shall have a good turn out.  Bryan's kind provision of a buffet should be an added incentive.
Hope to see you Thursday.
Kind Regards

Thank you so much for the support you and the club gave to our church service last Sunday.
I shall be at the Drum on Thursday to thank you and your members personally. I have organized a small buffet for Thursday evening.

Look forward to seeing you all again on Thursday, and once again,  Many thanks.

Hi Folks,
Just a reminder that the above service takes place in the Stanford Parish Church on Sunday at 1730, or 5.30 pm, if you prefer, please note that is an hour earlier than was previously advertised.
I would be most grateful for as much support as we can gather to show our appreciation of how well we are looked after by the pub when so many other clubs are struggling.
As I understand it Bryan, our landlord, is handing or has handed over the running of the pub to his son Jonathon so we need to gain his support in the way that we have had Bryan's.  This service appears to be Bryan's swansong so it will act as both a thank you to Bryan and an indication to Jonathon that we are an asset to his business.
There is also a barbecue afterwards at the pub so that is an additional incentive to come along.
Dannie, Maureen, Teresa, Alison, Ian (Ali's dad) and I will be singing and playing:  Kumbaya, Smuggler (McCalman's and Maureen) and Lord of the Dance so please come to add your voices from the congregation.  Heathens (like Maureen and me) will be equally welcomed for a good sing.
Lastly, but by no means least I would like to thank all those who took the time and trouble to give us suggestions for something to sing.  I am sorry it has been so rushed but time has been tight.
