Drama Club Quiz We normally hold this highly popular event in November but owing to the Osmans’ holiday plans and Sarah’s imminent new arrival we have delayed it until next year – Saturday 25 February at the Memorial Hall. Make a note of the date in your diary – it’s always a really fun evening, especially with Rosemary’s great hot food!
