According to June Thaine, a small group has been working on the future of Flying Folk Club. Everyone concerned is 100% positive that the club should continue and there has been a good response from those willing to source a venue and to host a night initially.
The date and venue we now have for the celebration of Geoff and Myrtle’s lives are
Saturday 25th September at 8.00 pm. at The Norfolk Lurcher, Highhouse Farm Ln, Colton, Norwich NR9 5DG.
Thereafter, we are looking to set up nights not too far out of the city during the rest of the winter months, planning to venture further afield as the weather improves in 2022.
Flying Folk belongs to us all, and when we meet, please come forward with ideas of how you can contribute to ensure its success going forward. It is almost impossible to comprehend how we will manage this without Geoff at the helm, but manage it we must.
We are also looking to set up a Facebook page for Flying Folk, where other similar folk events may be posted.
One of Geoff’s great strengths was his inclusivity which helped us build Flying Folk over the years, so, in the same spirit, every one of us is included in its future. Naturally we are all at the mercy of Covid restrictions and obviously, these will dictate the future. So if we can, lets all meet up on September 25th at The Norfolk Lurcher and give Geoff and Myrtle a superb send-off.
It is hoped that we can hold an annual Geoff Day each September and also it is considered important to keep the Boxing Day tradition alive. To that end, The Lurcher has kindly offered to be available to us from 1.00 pm to 6.00 pm this year.
