On Friday 1st April 2011 14 members (and Lois) travelled to Southampton for King John Morris Men's Annual Day of Dance on Saturday 2nd April 2011. We travelled in 4 separate cars and rendezvoused at The Woodman Inn, Ferndown, just before Ringwood on the A31. On arrival, the barman was a bit taken back by nearly everyopne waving a piece of A4 paper at him demanding a free drink. They were vouchers downloaded from the Marstons website! We all took advantage of the 2 for 1 offer of a meal as well, so most people got a meal and a pint for about £5. Friday evening saw us at the usual pub gathering at Samuel's Rest - after some of us managed to drag ourselves away from The Wheatsheaf. Saturday was a day tour by coach in and around Southampton, visiting local villages and a few pubs, and a ferry ride across the River Hamble to Warsash before heading back to base for a slap up meal and home made entertainment.
On Sunday we stopped off at Otter Nurseries, near Ottery St. Mary, Devon, to entertain the visitors, before the final journey home.
