In May the club moved back to its original home at the White Lion, now under new management and minus the barking dogs. In November the first singaround took place, more of a tune session with the occasional song at that time, and prompted by the landlord's accountant who wanted to have the folk club running every week if possible. This became a regular feature on the the third Thursday of each month thus making the club a fortnightly event, which the accountant thought was an acceptable compromise. A ceilidh at Crowland British Legion Hall in May with The Old Parrot Band raised £183 for the Nic Jones benefit fund. Founder members Alan and Maggie Wood bowed out in 1982, but John and Penny Sykes carried on as sole organisers.
