Medstead Players – Pantomime Auditions

The Villager

Our May meeting was a reading of the revised script for a pantomime to be performed at the beginning of December this year.

Cinderella is about to marry Aladdin, when they find that all their money and wealth has been stolen, though they do not know by whom.

Everyone is welcome to audition it is always great fun. ...

Small birds and Blackbirds often nest in hedges and shrubs close to properties, especially if there is a good supply of food and water. If you discover a nest, it is important to wait until the young birds have fledged, before cutting back foliage. ...
