Left - Michelle Watkins, Sheryl Watkins and Corinne Watkins, new landlady of the Horse & Jockey, serving customers in the New Street pub on Friday 21st January.

Corinne Watkins is the proud new landlady of the Horse & Jockey and took possession of the keys to the building on Monday, 17th January. The pub was officially opened on Wednesday and an opening party was held on Friday 21st.

A great evening's entertainment was provided by Marc Drew, pictured below, Danny Lee and Kazz.

Corinne intends to provide good pub food and regular entertainment. We wish her well in her venture.

The Robin, Erithacus rubecula is one of the best loved of British birds, which can be seen all year round but is especially noticeable in trees and hedgerows during the winter months. Both the male and female adult birds have the same familiar red breast which, in the case of the one above, photographed whilst walking to Backney, cannot be fully seen as the bird was facing the wrong way. Robins are aggressively territorial birds - I was certainly worried about walking past this one, I can tell you!

Again, whilst walking to Backney last Tuesday, 18th January I thought the the row of coppiced trees, void of their leaves and pictured below was a colourful view. No doubt somebody will be able to tell me what they are as I cannot currently find my 'Observer's Book of Trees'.
