News Letter February 2022
Hi all, I think the majority of us have the post show blues after a fantastic panto. I know this has been said many times but wow how lucky are we to have such talent in our Society especially the future of CUDOS in the current juniors. We were blown away by their talent and maturity during rehearsals and show week. The future is definitely bright!!
My role as your Chairman will come to an end at the AGM this year . The normal length of service is 3 years but due to covid and there being no AGM in 2020 and a late one in 2021 I have ended up completing 5 years this time round. So we are on the lookout for a new chairman/person/woman ,however you wish to label yourself, to take over at the AGM. Support is always there from myself or current committee members. If you're interested but have questions don't hesitate to ask.
See you all soon. Kerry x
We have been lucky for a number of years to have Dave and Maureen Sach run the bar for us. This is not just manning it during shows but also sorting all the stock for it, refilling etc. They have now hung up their optics for the last time so we are on the look - out for new managers. We already have some interest but as this was only announced at the panto aftershow party we felt it only fair to give everyone the opportunity or possibly it could end up with more people sharing the responsibility.
Please contact any of your committee to register your interest. Maureen will be on hand for any advice to help you. Thank you
