Review of Crowns and Coronets

Many People from the village converged on the Village Hall for the evening’s wonderful entertainment celebrating the 1950’s and the 60th Anniversary of the Queen. Duncan Reid played the Keyboard and he rattled the keys so that the large audience would be quiet for Mike Bendell to begin his Master of Ceremonies which he did with a Yorkshire accent, throughout the evening it changed to questionable German, French and his own accent It was very amusing. ‘Vocality.’ began the entertainment with a medley from Kiss me Kate and the King and I. The group meet in Udimore Hall on a Wednesday afternoon every other week, they will be resuming in September if any one is interested please call Duncan Reid 01424 882412 or Nadia Florence Marshall 01424 882948 The solo singers Jan reeves, Mike Bendell, Gary Marriott and Verity Page were all in fine voice. Gary Steele’s No one likes a Fairy when she’s 40 had everybody in fits of laughter as did Goldilocks and the three bears, the monologues from Jo Page and Mary Barratt and the sketch from Bobby Boud and Julie Etches. We felt the frustration Bobby had trying to buy a cup of coffee. It was a bit too true. Maggie Wharton presented Nursery Rhymes with their meanings and how they began, very interesting and amusing. Grace Cary had us singing her version of ‘Three men in a boat.’ The evening ended with the usual Patriotic songs and God Save the Queen and the waving of Union flags. A good time was had by all.

Grateful thanks go to Mr and Mrs Vickary at Manor Farm for hosting the event to raise money to repair the Church Clock. The ambience was wonderful as was the nibbles provided by them and other guests, it was lovely for so many people in the village to meet and support the two events. The latter raised £645.00; which was absolutely fantastic, well done!
