“Some are born great, some achieve greatness and some have greatness thrust upon them”  Twelfth Night  Act 2 scene 5

Sheila writes: “Thanks for electing me as Chairman last week.  I can’t promise to work miracles only to do my best.”

A quick reminder that Tuesday, 18 June we will be auditioning for BOLT FROM THE BLUE which I hope will be an enjoyable play to take part in.  It’s different, quirky and should be altogether lots of fun.

On TUESDAY 25th there won’t be a general meeting as we will be holding our first COMMITTEE MEETING of this season.  If you have anything you would like the new committee to discuss please let

me know tonight or by e mail tomorrow latest.

TUESDAY 2nd July – Peter C and Sue Hardman will be holding a rehearsal for the dances that will be presented at the Crow Fair.  Please contact Peter direct for details about this.

TUESDAY 9th July – Please do come along to a general meeting of ALL members.  I would like to discuss the future of the drama group and to get everyone’s opinion as to how we should proceed.

Also we need to discuss several important ideas and suggestions that have been put forward about collaborating with other groups.

Reminders:   Please let Derek Morris know if you would like to visit Media City in Salford Quays on Thursday,  17 Sept.  Signing up is now urgent as places are limited.

Please let Sue or Lynn have your prizes for their Crow Fair Stall (366 needed!).
