Norfolk Dixieland Jazz Band…

Sunday 1st May at The Goat Skeyton the Dixieland Jazz Band certainly got things warmed up, after a dodgy start as the electricity went off, bless them the staff were great what a terrible thing to happen in the middle of Sunday lunch. however all came back on so nothing spoilt, a few fast heartbeats caused though, but everyone got their lunches. And as I said the staff smiled through the chaos so well done to them.

I think the band played even better than usual,  they all gelled so well, and enjoyed it all, as did the audience.

Thanks Tim for once again taking me and the lunch, thanks as always to Jean who always looks after me, nice to see Judy as well… Thanks to the lads and lasses who let us share their table to watch the band, such lovely people come along there to listen who I must say are always so nice to me.

I took a few photos… nice to see the sun but not good for my little camera…but I tried!

Next session is 5th June…If the weather good it will be outside in the gardens. 

Book if you want lunch as they get very busy…


Bill one of the best trombone players, who always makes a good photo…




lovely smile Vic…

Peregrines again…

This was at tea time 3 little fluff balls, being fed so carefully by Mum with Dad watching… Hard to think they will grow to be the size of the adults …

Peregrines again

 3 chicks are well and truly here …looking good 4th one will come soon…

What great parents these two are… every year it is so wonderful to see nature so close up.

This lunchtime Dinner has been brought by Dad and Mum gently feeds the chicks with Dad watching, then Mum flew off with the rest of food, and Dad came and sheltered them, Mum back now so although Dad was enjoying sitting she has now turned him out and is back on the chicks and egg once more…

gently does it


3 and one egg

Sole Bay Jazz with friends…

Another great evening of live music at The Sports Pavilion Ditchingham…with The Sole Bay Jazz Band and Friends…

Thanks to one and all… Some great playing as I said and some rather nice singing Tony P thanks.

We had the line up then half time in walked Ron and family so we had an added attraction!

Everyone played so good as always… a lot of talent for us to listen to, always amazing how no matter what line up they always seem to gel together.

A good raffle and thanks as always to those who give prizes to help with the kitty for the raffle and for my raffle ticket folders…We do appreciate you all digging deep for the raffle which helps to bring these talented folk to play for us…

Great crowd to support the band, and nice to see some of the regulars back, I am still rather bothered that some still seem to be off sick so if anyone looks in that knows what is the matter with anyone of them please get in touch. Brian (Ninja's Dad please contact me)

I also want to send our prayers and love to Simon Denny, who is in hospital at the moment not for long we hope, but all the gang and the band send their very best wishes to you Simon for a speedy recovery and get back to sing for us please. Sheila we send our love to you and the family as well …you are suffering at the moment and we miss you.

Heidi had a birthday party for one of her lovely children, hope you had a good time Zoe… so Jon spent the evening with us behind the bar, nice to see you Jon hope it was not too frantic as a good thirsty crowd…
