The Parish Council are holding a special meeting on Monday 30th November at 7.00 p.m. with just one item on the agenda. This is to consider the new planning application for the Affordable Housing scheme on Norwich Road.
The bar was crowded for the Village Hall AGM last night. The meeting received reports on a busy year’s activities which had been both socially and financially successful.
This was followed by a meeting of the Management Committee where, following the re-election of the officers, progress with the planning application for the new extension and changes to the car park were discussed.
Dates for a series of coming events including the Whist Drive, Village Quiz and Beetle Drive were agreed. As usual a Christmas Eve Party will be organised but it was decided not to hold a New Year’s Eve event this year.
Our Theatre Correspondent has provided the following review of this year’s Rising Stars show, ‘A Spoonful of Sugar’, which was staged by the Variety Club at the Village Hall on November 13th and 14th.
It was, as always, a delight to be part of an appreciative audience at the annual Rising Stars production. Denise Grant and her team brought together a group of youngsters with many talents; the singing, especially, was well executed with a number of fine solo performances.
There were a few glitches but we all know that a show isn’t a show without the odd hiccup and, taken as a whole, the cast did the production team proud. A special mention for Eva Lamb, who played several roles with great confidence.
Despite their youth, many of the cast are already seasoned performers and they played the audience for laughs at every opportunity, especially the suffragettes who were provided with some very amusing lines by Charlotte Valori. Well done to everyone who worked so hard to put on such a good show.
