S/F Committee wish all a happy new year


Christmas has been
and Christmas has gone
Time to sing, another song
One that brings in the new year
And one to bring, some jolly good cheer.

So friends and family gather round
There's plenty of spirits, I'll be bound
But drinking a tipple if driving about
Is not so good, without a doubt

Mr plod is looking around
and he may catch you, I'll be bound.


And remember, the morning after may still leave you over the top.


An Ode to strings for the winter


Keep your strings out of the cold
If they break you have been told
When in a boot they be come brittle
And when they break, you can do little.
That point you worked so hard for
Alas, is yours no more.
