Thought for the Week: Don't limit your challenge. Challenge your limits.
The final week has eventually arrived, a few long nights ahead for the cast & crew. Hopefully this wild and windy weather will have blown over by the weekend. There are always the last few items to be tidied up and hopefully the cast have most of their lines off ..!! Everyone looks forward to getting the first night over. It is a very enjoyable show this year as the music really lifts the spirits and you cannot help joining in with the singers - which we encourage. The songs are well known and have stood the test of time. It's a great opportunity for parishioners to meet up as we welcome back our loyal supporters over the two weekends.
