Transition Town Worthing Sow & Grow Seed Swap – 14th February

GREEN SINGERS!

No it wasn't what we ate, as the range of really interesting food in the 'pop up' café was imaginative and tasty, so I'm told, as I couldn't get near it for the queue.

A great turnout, and thanks to everyone for supporting a very relevant event, remember to regularly turn your compost, I have been doing so since a small boy.

I hope you all enjoyed a truly memorable romantic evening into the wee small hours afterwards, you deserved it!

Two Folk Club Invitations

Here's a message from Julie T, the lady who does a champion job looking after our Twitter account:
Two Folk/Music clubs in the area have invited our members (via Twitter) to come along to their regular events. They are not asking us to perform as such but of course if anyone would like to go as a small posse of SDFS singers, I'm sure they'd love to meet us and also we may recruit from them too.

Open Space Lewes – new venue for Music & Poetry nights, 1st Sunday every month, 7pm - 11pm, upstairs function room at the Elephant & Castle pub, White Hill, Lewes BN7 2DJ. All welcome. Free! www.openspacelewes.org.uk

Havant Folk Club – meet at Havant Hockey Club, Havant Park, Havant, PO9 1HH. Donation (suggested £3). Usually meet on the 3rd Sunday of each month, but please check their calendar for up to date info and more about the club at: Havant Folk Club - Igloo Music

Cotillion – SDFS Choir Members Anne & Alan also in a folk group

Members may be interested to learn that Anne & Alan, as well as doing standard folk gigs, have been performing with their folk group Cotillion in a number of "folk shows" around the Sussex area for the last four years. The three shows tell the story in both narration and song of "The Last Trip Home" for working horses, folk tales month by month in "A Sussex Calendar"  and celebrate a traditional "Sussex Christmas". Details of the group and planned events are listed on the web site.

Editor's note: many of us will have enjoyed the singing of Anne and Alan at our recent Wassail gathering and it's good to know where else we can hear them. If you're one of our singers and you have your own website related to music or the South Downs, please get in touch if you would like a mention heresouthdownsfolksingers@gmail.com
