quotesTHE LATEST gathering at the Devonshire Arms in Cambridge was a very enjoyable Sunday afternoon. Charlie and Frazer were already there with Zoë when I arrived and another regular John soon joined us. For a while we thought we might be the sole members to attend, but as our roast lunches arrived, so did some more beards.

Next year will probably revert to a Saturday though (despite the excellent Sunday roasts) as there does seem to be more attendance on Saturdays. All said we had eleven, including Rend and Marc who missed the group photo.

Discussions ranged through the usual catch-ups and introductions to music and, most importantly, talk of a gathering in Berkshire and where that might be. If it hadnít been for the food and beer to quench us, we would have been very hungry and thirsty at Johnís descriptions of Berkshireís finest pubs.

Having cycled from the train station on my modern penny-farthing, it was only good for the constitution to have a little spin and both Charlie and Frazer were up for a test ride!

The day was rounded off with photos outside, however, the Dev is having their roof re-slated and the front did not make a good shot with cars and scaffolding in the way so we were lined up outside next door: The Confidential Shop. Donít ask what they sell Ė itís confidential!! EB/TBBC

All the bearded best
