Hi Folks,

I don’t expect any of you will be surprised but, at our committee meeting last night, we decided that it would not be possible to do the play this year. I am moving the license once again and hopefully we will get it done next year. Sad I know but we will do it one day. Hope you are all well. Keep smiling

Hi all, I hope you're all keeping safe and well during these crazy times. Thank you to all of you that managed to attend the ZOOM meeting for the Cinderella Awards after a couple of glitches it turned out to be a fun evening. We, your committee, are still available to talk to if there is anything you wish to discuss so please don't hesitate to contact any of us. Sadly due to the lockdown we have had to put ‘CUDOS’ on hold for the time being. Hopefully it won’t be too long before we can get back together and carry on with the planned programme. We really can't wait to get back to normal and into the swing of things. Keep safe. Kerry.xx


A fun evening enjoyed by all ages and raised the great sum of £464. A big thank you to George Flint and team. A new, very successful fundraising/social event for CUDOS.


The SFD Cinderella Cup Awards evening was held ‘virtually’ and the Directors and many of the cast and crew watched it together on ZOOM.

We are pleased to have received 2 awards and 7 nominations:
