Housekeeper Wanted – Play Reading
Well we may live in an age where ‘techno gadgets’ rule but on Saturday 21 February the reading of ‘Housekeeper Wanted’ proved that everything doesn’t have to be high-tech to provide enjoyment.
The actors, who saw the script for the first time as they started the play reading, gave a wonderful performance which elicited much merriment from the audience.
The ‘experiment’ of having a set, props and allowing the readers to follow the actions as well as the lines proved to be very funny and a success. Many thanks to all who were brave enough to accept the challenge. In the words of old Mr Grace: “You’ve all done very well”.
Thanks also to the audience for supporting the event and to those who donated raffle prizes. The raffle raised £53. After deducting £30 for costs £23 was raised for the hall.

Village Hall – ‘Brief Lives’
On Thursday 19th March 2015 at 7.30 pm Other Lives Productions performed Patrick Garlands play ‘Brief Lives’.
The play was a highly entertaining one man show that traced a day in the late life of the seventeenth century diarist, John Aubrey. Old John Aubrey took his audience by the hand and, with a twinkle in his eye, lead them through a day late in his life, launching into wicked tales. He regaled you with tales of his contemporaries – Oliver Cromwell, Charles II, Nell Gwyn – and stories gleaned as a child from folk who knew the likes of Shakespeare, Queen Elizabeth, Sir Walter Raleigh. By turns he was a stand-up comic, a philosopher, a lodger in a garret room suffering crying babies and other noisy co-tenants. Once he started to speak to you he was like the Ancient Mariner – you could not choose but hear.
Thank you to all who gave their support. The event raised £96 for Village Hall funds.
Bake Off and Coffee Morning
