Fund-Raising Lunches

Two fund-raising lunches in aid of good causes are planned for the New Year in Denton. They will be held at the Village Hall on Sunday, January 25th and Sunday 15th March.

A Star Performance from the Rising Stars

“No Room at the Inn” was the title of this year’s Rising Stars show but it was “Standing Room Only” at the village hall yesterday. The Stars performed to a packed house and the cast, of 13, the production team and the audience all had a great time. The plot followed the traditional Christmas story up to the arrival of the baby Jesus but included an interesting modern morality sub-plot running in parallel.

The ages of the performers ranged from three upwards and the group singing scenes were particularly attractive. Mary and Joseph, played by Imogen and Lydia Sida-Page, and the inn-keepers, Megan and Ethan Wiles, all delivered their lines with great aplomb and kept the audience laughing. The “modern” ladies: Abi Symonds, Lydia Hulme, Laura Oxley and Amy Cook also played their parts well and danced delightfully.

Everybody involved in the production should be congratulated but, as usual, special thanks must go to the “Organiser and Script Writer”, Gill Hipwell.
