A Big Thank You to Karl and Lynne

For eight years Karl and Lynne Davies have been our hosts at the Alison Arms. Throughout they have been generous and helpful every week, providing a home for our singarounds complete with pies at the interval. Not only that but they worked hard to make our special events - ectra special. This is particularly true of the festival, building stages, providing awnings, a bar -- nothing was to much for Karl and Lynne who then worked their socks off all weekend to keep everyone supplied.

Most of we will never forget Elvis the dog and for short while his friend Priscilla or was it Colonel Parker the cat. Elvis won hearts with his love of the music of Johnny Cash and his eagerness to provide harmonised howling at the folk festival. When he wasn't howling he was usually flopped down in comfort. Good luck Elvis in your new home.

Karl and Lynne everyone at the club is so sad you've moved on from the Alison Arms and we wish you all the best in your new ventures. You've been magnificent to is, we can't thank you enough, thank you.
