Thursday March 13th: Last Sunday was another packed house for Jazz Sunday. We welcomed the fabulous Double Bass player James Paylor for the first time with wash board & piano accompaniment it was greatly enjoyed by all. Lots of rugby action and the appearance of the sunshine also guaranteed a busy weekend. We look forward to the coming weekend.
