the crayford arms will be putting on other days of course, but its a struggle due to lack of support / clashes with oter dates etc, this cannot be helped and obviously is not planned that way, the only thing i can say is its a matter of choice , i will far rather support demelza house in what little way i can and will always be at crayford arms when they arrange a day of dance and folk, sadly the folk scene is always clashing somewhere, i will post the definate date as soon as i can, but it WILL be the 12 th or 19th, no matter what

Focke Wulf

Fokkers were Dutch by WW2 - they made a curious push-me-pullyou thing with a front and rear engine in one fusellage and twin booms to the rudders and tailplane.

THe Fokker triplane of Baron von Richthoven in WW1 was German.

The Fokker Brothers Designed The German FW 190. a Fighter Bomber that played Havoc with both American and British Bombers during WW2.

I often sit in the cockpit of one at the War Museum. The Fokker brothers may well have been Dutch Richard, I wouldnt know but they designed a German Aircraft During ww2. Thats a Fact.

The Lancaster Bomber crews nicknamed themselves Fokker Fodder during WW2.
Kind Regards Pierre.

I,ll be there Romany Man.

Get me Facts Right.
Sorry the Dutch Fokker Brothers did not only design it they made it and the German stuck a Swastica on each wing and mounted a bloody great Cannnon that fired through the prop shalft.More then a match for the Spitfire and deadly to Bombers. but production was limited.

Its matched the Spitfire in everything but Monouvability.

A Polish pilot addressing the pupils at a very refined girls school, was explaining how he had downed three enemy planes.

"They vos lined up in a row, zese three Fokkers, und I passed along ze line wiz guns firing, und all three burst into flames" he said.

The headmistress jumped in quickly. "Now gels", she said, "I should explain that the Fokker was a make of German aircraft".

"Yes Missis", said the Pole, "but zese Fokkers voss Messerschmidts".

if enough interest there will be more, but sadly no matter what or when the arms try to do anything it seems to be a problem, i think this may well be the make or break session, shame as its such a great venue but no one seems to want it, its free , its wanted by the pub and regulars, they lay on food for all, they got third in the CAMRA survey, its easy to get to from anywhere yet its badly supported .

Hey Ken

Barden, KevKlogs, Dilli, Essex Girl and Richard Bridge were talking at Knockholt about the one Sunday a month Nags Head sessions in Lower Stoke and the distance for most to travel.

Would the Crayford Arms landlady, be happy to let a monthly Sunday sing around session meet there?

Sorry RB, Kev, or any others if I stole your thunder on this? Just hate to see a potentially ideal folk venue fade due to lack of use.

"If it is only going to be once a month could we not do both venues on different days?"

Good idea.Surely if a regular thing (or things) folky is (are) established at the Arms,support would build. In time it may sort out the "clashing problem." It isn't lack of interest it's just lack of coordination.

There is a room upstairs at the Crayford Arms.
but I prefer to play below with the pub regulars but thats just my preference. I do not mind.

I like The Nags Head Lower stoke and if we can alternate it with Crayford that would be fantastic but to lose and swap venues and not go back to Lower Stoke entirely would be awful.
The lower stoke lot have been good to us and I would like to go back at least once a year.

Now that I'm fully retired, I was considering getting back into organising and the Crayford Arms is very easy for me to reach, particularly on public transport.

I had thought about starting a monthly Sunday afternoon Folk club in the room, with perhaps alternating sessions in the bar, a la FaB Club.

I don't want to tread on toes if somebody else has plans, but it will be a good opportunity to have a natter with Ken and the licensees on Saturday.

Comments please.

The crayford arms should be available sundays and yes if you want the room have it if you want the bar area have it sharon is receptive, as for real ales the crayford arms stocks a permanent supply, they sell the most real ales in the area and came third in the camra real ale competition this year, not bad for a first attempt, don if you want to take it on do so, im no good at organising things really i just let people know whats on there, sadly for a year or more ive harped on about the arms to no avail, but its still there, use it or lose it comes to mind.

Ken, We brought up the Crayford Arms as an alternative to the Nags Head as Richard has some reservations about being able to continue at the Nags Head, but we'll have to see what transpires. At least I can get to Crayford on Public Transport (much better for the publican)I'll be at The Crayford Arms on Saturday anyway.

Great, Don. I would advocate the opposite way to Fab Club though, ?i'd put the floor spot/session in the bar,and the guest upstairs.

After the enthusiastic noises about the ease of getting there on public transport, I find that there are engineering works between Sittingbourne and Gillingham on Saturday! Trainline recommends a four-hour journey via Dover and Waterloo! I shall attempt to get there somehow (even if it's on a rail replacement bus service - aaagh!).

Perish the thought Ken, never D&I, just fairly brightly illuminated.

Sue, before I do anything about this, I shall chat with Richard and yourself.

I plan to add to the scene, definitely not compete.

Depending on talks with the licnsees, I might try for a Saturday evening club, which competes with nobody this side of Sarfend, as far as I know, and has the advantage that few have to get up early on Sunday.

Google directions give

A12 28.5 miles - 42 mins
A13 34.3 miles - 55 mins

Adding a bit of reality to that expression of optimism, I'd say A12 60 mins into Crayford, and maybe 45 mins home.

Ken, yes I'll do that. See you Saturday.

Spoke to Sharon, and Royston and I will be starting a regular session in the new year.

It will be a Sunday afternoon session, and may be either once or twice a month.

We will be talking to Richard, to ensure it doesn't compete with Nags Head, and hopefully doesn't compete with Fab Club, so there's a bit of discussion needed there.

We are looking to run a session before the winter, as a taster for those who might like to get involved. It's worth going for the beer, the friendly staff, and a rattling good venue. Add in the music, and it's a must.

Possibility of an evening Folk Club in the room upstairs at a later date.

Thanks to Ken for arranging the session yesterday, and it was great to see all of you who made it. Another good day's singing, dancing, and drinking.

Most months we will only be able to go to one Sunday session. We might just have to alternate between Crayford and Nags.

Tam, that's a future possibility if I can work something out with Sharon. Thing is they run other events on Saturday nights, so to set one Saturday aside will take working out.

But we are on the case, and it is possible.

The upstairs room is great, exactly the right shape, and marvellous acoustics. Considerable natural reverb.

Fab Club is normally first,third and fourth Sundays. Occasionally there is something on the second Sunday, as per October when the Phatts are on. Mostly there is no cross-over betwixt Kent and Essex, just us, but we don't have to go every time. The second Sunday clashes with the regular Irish(ish) session at The Black Horse. I'd say the first and fourth would be good.
