Nice name. In the late 1980s I played at Sheerness Literary and Social Cub, which seemed an odd name to me for a working people's club on the Isle of Sheppey. Back then Sheppey was mostly sheep. Also the place (Eastchurch) where the Short Bros made the first powered flight in UK.

It was a Short flight. I thought that honour belonged to S.F. Cody, an American.
