The Skillet Pot was known to start life at the Cambridge Inn, but  the date/year when it started  is not known. The date of the move to the New Inns Bromsgrove Street is not known, but it was running there in  July/August 1967. It moved, yet again on an unknown date, to the Old Contemptibles in Livery Street. It was here that the fore-runner of Drowsy Maggie was formed  called  the Raparees consisting of Norman Ellard, guitar and some vocals, Kevin Thomas, tenor banjo and mandolin, Adrian (Ado) Morris on whistle  and Mick Hipkiss on vocals . Any memories able to fill in missing detail would be appreciated.
