Work Starting at the Church

Work will shortly be starting on the major restoration project at St Mary's Church.

This is due to commence on Monday March 6th. While the work is in progress there will be limited access to the building.
Further details can be found on the Church Page.

Don't Cut Off Their Heads!

The audience at the Village Hall on Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights were somewhat relieved when the anticipated executions by guillotine at the end of this year's pantomime did not actually take place.

Instead the whole cast, goodies and baddies, broke into song with "United we stand, divided we fall" in the finale, which neatly served to underline the great teamwork exhibited by the members of DVC yet again. Led by the writers Denise and Peter Grant, they created a show which was much enjoyed both by those taking part and, more importantly, the audiences.

Of course the guillotine was not invented until some time after the "Three Musketeers" were walking the streets of Paris but historical accuracy should never get in the way of a good panto. Further details and a full review appear in the Club's History Section but special mention should perhaps be made here of Barbara Spaul's outstanding costumes and, of course, the "orchestra". Ken Ashton, Simon Winter and Sue Altarelli did noble service expertly playing some great, familiar, tunes to support the singing, another highlight of the show.

A New Clerk

The Parish Council have appointed a new Clerk.

Following the resignation of Zoe Whiting, DPC have appointed Jackie Ellis, who lives in Harleston, as the new Parish Clerk.

Jackie has served as Alburgh PC's clerk for a number of years so brings a wealth of experience to the position.

Another View of Brexit

Tired of the whole Brexit discussion? To see it from the French side come to the Panto on February 16th, 17th or 18th.

DVC’s take on Dumas’ Three Musketeers is a tale of intrigue, treason and espionage, with plenty of drinking, dancing and drama thrown in.

Watch out for the breath-taking swordsmanship, superbly choreographed dancing and how to rid a city of rats. Oh, and keep your money handy for a chance to buy the latest wonder gadget for the kitchen.

Will the English spies get their soft Brexit or will the evil Cardinal have his wicked way?
