20 Hamblings Close







Dear Member,


Spring Production

Iím very pleased to report that Philip has been able to cast Role Play, our next production, and rehearsals will start in late January.The cast is as follows:


Julie-Ann†††††††††††† Laura Kett

Justin†††††††††††††††††† Rob Jenkins

Paige†††††††††††††††††† Jocasta Corran

Mickey††††††††††††††† David Johns-Burcombe

Derek††††††††††††††††† Willum Scott

Dee†††††††††††††††††††† Liz Nutt

Arabella†††††††††††††† Merle Scott


You will notice some unfamiliar names in the cast, and Iím particularly pleased that this production will feature four new members.After some problems earlier in the year we seem to be enjoying something of a renaissance at the moment Ė letís hope we can keep the momentum going.Iím sure you will all join me in welcoming our new members to the society.


Having said that, Philip is still on the lookout for people to fill various backstage roles and would love to hear from anyone who is able to help Ė please contact him on 01923 854520 for more information.


Social Events

The Quiz Evening on 2nd December was very successful with the Players and RLOS fielding 5 teams between us.It would of course be churlish to mention that one of the Players teams won Ė so I wonít.My thanks to all those involved in organising the evening, especially Doug Rhodes in his capacity as quiz master.



The ever-popular Brunch at Rosemaryís house is now only a few weeks away so you need to clear your diary on Sunday 15th January from 12.30 onwards.Rosemary does need to know numbers in advance for the catering so please give her a ring on 01923 855065 to let her know youíre attending.The cost this year will be a very modest £6 per head, which covers all food and drink.



One Act Play Evening

A reminder of our One Act Play evening on 27th January at St Johnís Hall at 8.00pm.This also features a number of new members to the society, who have been working hard under the expert guidance of Chantelle and Sandra Anders.Please feel free to bring along friends and family to support our new members.


Memberís Evenings

Please note that we wonít be holding a Memberís Evening in January, as Iím sure everyone will be recovering from the festivities at that time.The next evening will be Tuesday 7th February at the Youth Club, as usual.


And finallyÖ..all that remains is for me to wish you and your families a very happy Christmas and successful New Year.


Best Wishes
