July News Letter
NEWSLETTER ISSUE NO: 155
Hi All,Firstly a massive thank you to Lucy and John for hosting the Treasure Hunt. It was a huge hit for all taking part especially with the tasks that had to be completed on the way round. It's always so nice when a different member of our society steps forward to do one of the social events,all you have to do is show an interest and we will help guide you through it. I've only managed to pop in to a couple of Spamalot rehearsals but it is sounding and looking fantastic so make sure you get your tickets before it's too late. Keep enjoying this fantastic weather while it lasts and I'll see you soon. Kerry.
It was with great sadness to learn of the passing of Neill. Neill was President of the Society for several years, always very supportive in many ways. We were able to store our costumes in the Coach House at Maincombe and use the house and garden for show publicity photos, very apt when we did Me and My Girl with the grand house and garden doubling up as ‘Hareford Hall’. Neill and his family hosted many a barbeque for us where we enjoyed playing croquet, football along with other games on their very large lawn. When Neill stepped down as President he was awarded Life Membership. We will always remember Neill with fondness.

Vikki Rolley and Dan Dominguez who have recently become engaged, we await to hear wedding bells.
Also many congratulations to Richard Hall and Debra Best on the safe arrival of Henley Michael Brian.
Condolences to Sue Green on the loss of her dear husband Bill. Sue joined the Society in 1985 and, when giving up treading the boards became a Patron. Bill, also a Patron, was very supportive of CUDOS, bringing along friends and family, they rarely missed any of our shows. Our thoughts are with you at this sad time.
