2011 year end

Well we come to the end of an eventful year that has seen the club move to a new home. One of the highlights of the year was the bus trip out to Whitley Bay folk club and its hoped we repeat the idea and visit a couple of other clubs in 2012.  The facilities we now enjoy at the Athenaeum club have been well used this December on our party come guest night when Jan and the girls did the grub and lovely it was too. Monkey moonshine were the last guests of the year and created a happy festive atmosphere to end the year on a high. Next year starts on January 3rd for the first sing around of the year. Kay and Ian will still be enjoying there trip to the states and I’m not certain if Jan and Mike will be back from there New year sortie to Knaresborough but I’m sure the rest of us will make good sound start. Best wishes all of you for 2012

The holiday fun is now well underway among the folkies with the Foggy Furze Folk Club holding their celebrations last Tuesday, 13 December 2011.

The FFFC held their party at the Athenaeum, in Church Street, which is their new club-house, and enjoyed a great night’s entertainment.  Monkey Moonshines were great with a well-driven percussion/rhythm sound.  There will be no FFFC on Tuesday 27 December 2011.      The Headland Folk Club is not meeting this week and is closed now till the New Year.  A date is to be advised but there are other folkie fixes to be had in the area. The Christmas party for the Pools Folk and Acoustic Club is to be held next Monday, 19 December 2011, at the Nursery in Hopps Street and we’re sure it’ll be a hooley.  Watch out for the Time Bandits, it’s kind of funky.  There’ll be bug racing and raffles and probably other things organised too so get yourself down there for a fun night.

This evening there’s fun to be had down at the Trincomalee where The Young ‘Uns return to their roots for the holidays.  They’ll be entertaining folks for £8 a ticket to lots of lovely folkie tunes.  The fun starts at 7.00 pm.

So, keep on folking around.  You can get along to the FFFC where it’s only £1 on a singaround night or £2 on a guest night.  You can keep in touch on www.foggyfurzefolk.com or try kay@foggyfurzefolk.com if you want to leave a message.  Have a smashing Christmas and we’ll be here between the holidays and back with a bang in the New Year.
