400 yrs Celebration for Midsummer 2016
on Sat. 25th June in the Church Room
It was a few nights after Midsummer’s Eve but we did have a great evening celebrating the life and work of The Bard of Avon. Thanks to our brilliant author, (William Shakespeare), a talented cast, (Pam, Gordon, Elizabeth, Neil, Cynthia, Christine, Yvonne, Angela, Jean Oxley, Hildegard, Richard, Geraldine, Margaret, Julie & Val), sound expert, (Geoff), providing us with the wonderful music of Mendelssohn and Prokofiev, a host of master chefs (social committee), and a captive audience who joined in enthusiastically, a good time was had by all. Everyone had a go at the quiz with some questions easier than others and one or two difficult photos. The winners were a team of Sheila, Jean and Pam D. There was a great selection of food which we tucked into at the end with a welcome glass of wine. Thanks to everyone who helped. So sorry anyone who missed it! It was a great evening.

(our grateful thanks to Val for all the hard work she put in to organising this evening, sorting out the Shakespeare quotes, assigning them to the ‘volunteers’ and finding the appropriate music. £174 was a brilliant result from the evening).
The Shakespeare Celebration for Midsummer was part of our Patronal Festival celebrations—a Coffee Morning held on 18 June was well supported, raising £143, as were the services on Sunday 19 June.
