We haven’t been to the Bird in Hand, Little Sandhurst (very much a community of its own), for years. ‘Little Sandhurst, which apparently has the nickname “Cock-a-doby”, is an area close to Sandhurst which it is rumoured was originally occupied by gypsies and railway workers’. Never knew that. We danced in the front in a very small area, dunno why but this always brings out the anarchic in us so much mucking around and laughing all round. Signposts’ was a hoot as dance/music didn’t synch too often…. Plenty of dancing. The really lovely staff came out to watch and a few punters stayed with us. The beast was out and about chasing staff and Wags contentedly. Greene King, but the GK ‘local’ beer was pretty good…and a good price J. ‘New fellas Dennis and Mike looking good in their new kit! Nice in the sun. Loved the cottage name next door ‘Two in the Bush’.
Off to the Rose & Crown, one of our favourite pubs also with an interesting range of real ales. Decided to dance on the concrete car park after last year’s decking disaster…. A successful Open Mic night was going on and so we kind of shared the pub, the organisers graciously had a break and came out to watch. Milly’s Bequest and Cap’n Larnos performed, getting better all the time. Bit nippy, so an early night for most.
