HAPPY CHRISTMAS TO ALL OUR READERS

Happy ChristmasOur Christmas Party held on 14th was enjoyed by all - A hot meal of Chicken casserole with Jacket Potatoes and peas, followed by Sweets and mince pies - with no washing up! Alan and Peter (WI husbands )wielded the tea towels with gusto.

Next we welcomed all of our guests, and opened Christmas cards with individual poems composed especially for the occasion.

then....then....then.... the Play reading began.(some actors had run this through together once; others never; two even got their parts on the actual day at a moment's notice and weren't even WI members. )

It was a Victorian Melodrama called LADY AUDLEY'S SECRET

A tale of a faded beauty of a barmaid, an elderly and Rich Lord Audley, a Scheming jumped up Lady Audley, and a long suffering maid.

George, a sad widower(or so he thought), a rough fellow(luke) and Robert Audley (Lord Audley's nephew) played their parts with feeling, and moustaches and sideburns.

A true action shot, with Luke (supported by two other village wenches) dying twice . Lady Audley and Robert Audley transfixed by something off stage.

Lady Audley was the villain of the piece. She was a bigamist, attempted Murder three times, committed arson, and finally went mad and killed herself. - ALL LIFE WAS THERE!

The Audience were also transfixed (ha ha)
The full cast taking a final bow - note the hand clapping by the audience.

We all finished off by singing Silent night, and A Way in a Manger. A lovely evening.

(Note - we apologise for the mystery circles appearing on some of the pictures they are entirely accidental and have no hidden meaning)
