Hi everyone, things have been busy this month with the rehearsals for DRS - which are going very well and I am loving the music - such good songs and fun to learn. I think it is going to be one of those shows that we will all talk about for years. Last weekend some of us sang up at Wadham to support the Relay for Life. Thank you so much Dendy for giving up your time to get us up to scratch - it is a shame that there was not as many singers as we would have liked but I'm sure we made a big noise for a good cause. Thanks to everyone who supported the Murder Mystery night, Ann and I do enjoy putting them together - It was good that finally it was Wendy who dunnit! Don’t forget to buy your tickets for DRS - it is going to be a great show. See you all soon. Polly

MURDER MYSTERY DINNER
A great night was had by all at the “School Reunion” taxing the old grey matter to solve who committed the murders and why, whilst enjoying a three-course dinner. A big thank you to Ann and Polly who devised the plot and organized the whole event, a huge number of hours goes into bringing a murder mystery to fruition. Thanks also to ‘the actors’ and those who helped prepare the food and did the washing up.

SET BUILD DIRTY ROTTEN SCOUNDRELS
Set building starts on the 19th August and then each Friday evening (7pm), Saturday and Sunday (10am) until the show.
Many hands make light work and it would be great if all members can come along to help, even if they are not actually in the show. You do not necessarily need to have building skills (although they would be an advantage) as there are always jobs to do such as painting, clearing up and making tea etc.
Congratulations to Keith Allington on gaining a BA (Hons) Degree in History from the Open University and is about to commence a PGCE. Well done Keith
We send our best wishes to Jessica Cummins and Keith Chinn and hope you both feel better soon.
