A new millenium and a new venue, or at least a return visit to an old favourite, the Lincoln Arms. The bus seats were no more but the room still as comfortable and the current management, Fred and June, very welcoming. And they didn't have any dogs.
The new season started with Graham and Eileen Pratt making their 7th appearance at Spalding and thus at that time our second most popular guests after Bill Whaley and Dave Fletcher (who notched up their tenth). The season also featured the second appearance of Spalding's very own rising star, Miranda Sykes, who played as part of the Robb Johnson Trio.
Despite some regulars being away at Sidmouth and elsewhere there was for the first time ever an experimental meeting in August which was a modest success and has remained a feature ever since
