Dancing at pubs and various locations
St George's Day at The Bramshill Hunt

Thistle gets started.
Ann and Mike G are the whackers-up

The Beehive, White Waltham
with Taeppa's Tump Morris
First time at this busy pub. The car parking was a bit of a challenge, but once we'd settled in, we had a really nice evening
OBJ Comprised: Ali, Ann, Chris, Chris D, Claudia, Eddie, Emma, Ian, Joe, Lawre, Liz, Mike G, Mike S, Nikki, Philip, Tony and Vera
Gridlock (quite appropriate after the difficulties with parking!)

The Crooked Billet, Gardeners Green
with Kennet Morris
We haven't danced at this pub for several years, so with a bit of encouragement from the new Landlord/Landlady we scraped together a side to dance with Kennet on a Monday evening.
A jolly good time was had by all, including the midges who dined well on all of us!
OBJ Comprised: Ali, Ann, Chris, Chris D, Claudia, Eddie, Ian, Joe, Lawre, Liz, Mike G, Nikki, Philip, Tony and Vera
