Music at the Cherry Tree and Most Haunted, Mellis and Diss - 26th November 2005

The Boy Phil texts to say that Sam and Daisy, who had been seen previously playing at the Angel Café in Diss, are playing at the Yaxley Cherry Tree. Cycling over was considered as it's only a couple of miles up the road, but Phil pointed out the reality that the weather was about -15°C outside so he would volunteer to drive. Bill, who lives nearby, appeared after his evening salsa session, and Gov - also a nearby resident - appeared later on with Rachael. It's also the first night under the new licencing regulations, which means that we're allowed to drink beer until 1am, apart from Phil who can't take any more J2Os. The music is excellent, with Sam and Daisy doing several encores, including a reprise of Nosher's favourite - Dark Room, as well as the interval support from Sam Coe, who performed an absolutely gorgeous interpretation of Coldplay's "Yellow". Later in the week, we're in Bar 13 in Diss for another music night, where Alex Hill's brother Rory has bought a Pentax K-1000 - Nosher's first camera - off eBay and is learning black and white photography. Finally, it's round to Marc and Sue's where an episode of TV's "Most Haunted" with Derek Acorah is being filmed next door, allegedly about the nearby crash site of a B17 during WWII
