Hi everyone. Hope you're all keeping well & avoiding all those lovely colds or even Covid, that are doing the rounds? Rehearsals for our Christmas Concert are underway & our panto The Three Musketeers has been cast with 1st rehearsal on 5th November. A lot of our members are being kept very busy and are looking forward to performing to full houses. Make sure you get your tickets as soon as possible. We had great fun earlier this month at our Dinner Dance, special thanks to Vicki Stephens for organising such a great night for us. Hope our younger members are enjoying their half term & I'm looking forward to seeing plenty of you in our panto in January. Take care everyone & much love to you all. Dendy


A fun evening with some excellent costumes following the theme of a character from musical theatre. The best costume was awarded to Rob Elliott-Judge as Phantom of the Opera. The draw raised £127 for the ‘Be A Good Neighbour’ who run the local food bank and is the CUDOS charity for 2023. Thank you again to Vicki Stephens for all her hard work put into organising the evening.

Firstly, I would like to thank you for doing me the honour of electing me as your Chair for a second year. I will continue to work hard for you in the coming year and know you will all make me so proud yet again. I would like to take the opportunity to congratulate all the worthy award winners again: what you have contributed to our society is amazing and that makes us the great group we are: without all of you we wouldn’t be here. Plenty of exciting times ahead as we move towards our workshops and then auditions for our next show, Made in Dagenham. I’m looking forward to watching this show come to fruition with Charmaine, Lucy and Lisa and wish all of you who choose to audition the best of luck. Your new committee are already starting to plan our social events where we can all get together and enjoy gathering without the uncertainty of the last few years through Covid. I would like to wish you all a happy and peaceful Easter and hope the sunny weather will continue into the weekend. Dendyx


This was well attended and we enjoyed catching up with friends over drinks and nibbles at the end.
