Village Entertainment Evening
Much fun was had by everyone who attended the Village Hall ‘Evening of Supper and Entertainment’ in Vernham Dean. Since the demise of Theatre Group, it was felt that there was still plenty of talent and enthusiasm within the community to put on a light-hearted show which might raise much-needed funds for the hall. Both of these aims were well met; tickets for the evening were sold out well in advance and it is hoped that the success of the occasion will encourage others to come and join in another time.
The evening began (and ended) with the first screening of a hilarious, specially created musical video skit on village life by ‘Val Loonycan’ (Sue Winch). Then Alison Rockwood and her team had put together a variety of acts, including sketches, monologues, a mini-panto and a stunning transformation of the ‘GlamGrans from old crones to dancing queens!
The rest of the cast included Judy Mills, Richard Winch, Quiller Taylor, Richard Backhouse, Emma Dickinson, Mick Giles, Amanda Taylor, Carolyn Coleman, Kate Taylor, Wendy Brock and Yvonne Edgecombe.
Many thanks go to the members of the Millennium Hall Committee who organised the event, ran the bar, and cooked and served the tasty home-made supper.
