July 2020

Hello Everybody

I thought I would take the opportunity to catch up with everyone and share some of the things I have been up to during these different times.
Putting up closure signs and looking my hair salon door back on March the 22nd was a very strange feeling, a feeling of expect the unexpected as I remember.
Over the next few days, I focused on setting up Hamble Quarantine Help with my amazing friend and councillor of the Parish Jo Nesbit Bell. We gathered together over 80 fabulous volunteers who have provided amazing support to our villagers over the past 3 months.  So, then we are told to “Stay in”!    There you have it, time to fill!
So, the baking started. A steady stream of cakes and pastries appeared and disappeared. Next came the tomato plants, and growing things became another pleasure of mine. I am sure many us followed a similar path.
Apart from baking and planting you will be please to know that I have been working tirelessly on the Hamble Players Pantomime which this year is going to be Mother Goose. I have been busy selecting music, speaking to our costume designers and technical teams so when the go ahead is given, we are ready to go into rehearsals.
Now that I am firmly a Zoom user I am planning to audition for the show on this platform (all new stuff!!) If you are interested in joining us , and would like to audition Watch This Space.
Everyone at the Hamble Players miss our amazing audiences
Thank you everyone for your support and I hope we can see each other very soon
Stay Safe
Chairman ( and panto director)
