Despite the Old Parrots organising a bit of dancing in
the previous December it wasn't quite like R Cajun and the smaller audiences
were starting to rattle around in the Rugby Club. In the search for a better
venue Dany hit on the Lincolnshire Poacher where there was a very small room
normally used as a restaurant. The club opened there in April.
the end of this year the Bell closed down, very sadly for the landlord John
who had been a great supporter of the club. In December the singaround moved
to the Welland yacht club. Over the years this has turned out to be a productive
liaison, with yacht club members coming along to hear the music (and perform),
and various folkies learning to sail. After the move Paul and Chris
Dickinson took over running the singaround for a few years, just keeping
the seat warm for Colin really.
