More Stars Required
The challenge of organising this year’s Rising Stars performance was one of the issues discussed at the Variety Club AGM on Friday.
Last year’s production for young people had to be cancelled due to the small number of children available. It was agreed to start recruitment earlier this year and spread the net slightly wider.
The meeting heard that, in spite of the cancellation, the Club had another successful year. Gill Hipwell was thanked for her sterling work as writer and director of the adult production, Aladdin. Julie Oxley was elected to take over from Peter Grant as Chairman of the Club with her daughter Laura taking the Secretary’s role.
