What drama group don’t have horrors putting their productions together, Lynda Snell in The Archers never has an easy ride, our plays and pantomimes don’t happen without the odd hitch along the way; The Farnndale Avenue Housing Estate Townswomen’s Guild Dramatic Society has it worse than most though with their Murder Mystery play. In their case if it can go wrong it will.
The scenery collapses, cues are missed, lines forgotten and the sound effects take a strange note at times (if they can be bothered to appear at all). The cast present their ambitious evening of entertainment with a cunning whodunit “Murder at Checkmate Manor”. Just in case the audience should get bored there is a film, a fashion show and a murder mystery quiz (complete with prize of course).
The suspense continues to the end and the Chairman is going to keep it going until that curtain falls.
If you managed to see either Peter Pan That Goes Wrong over Christmas on television or have been lucky enough to see The Play That Goes Wrong in London or recently on tour then this production is something you are going to love.
If you wish to get involved backstage, with set building or technical (lights and sounds effects) please call Kirstie Blair on 01666 840096 or email email@example.com
Tickets will go on sale on 16th March from the Post Office – £6.50 Child/Concession & £8.00 Adult including refreshments. We look forward to your continued support, remember SDG is not just for Panto.

It’s finally occurred..!! We are pleased to announce that the Carps has been taken over today and is to re-open again once the refurbishment has been completed.
Peter Brock, who is well known in the village, and who also used to run the pub before in the 1990’s, has taken it over and will finish the works that are needed.
His plans for running the pub certainly seemed to us to be the best to ensure the continued presence of a second pub in the village, and we are sure the entire village will support him in this exciting new venture.
If you have any queries or questions you can contact Peter on 01666 841017 or 07912777647

To commemorate the centenary of the start of the First World War, last year Sherston’s Service of Remembrance was held in the open for the first time. Estimates put the attendance in excess of 600 and the ceremony was considered a success by the village.
Accordingly, it is propose to hold the ceremony in the open, in front of the lych gate, again this year following a similar format with everyone in position by 10.45am. The service will start at 10.55 with the 2 minutes silence at 11.00. Representatives of the churches in Sherston will be taking the service. In addition to the regular wreath layers there will be an opportunity to lay a wreath or floral tribute in memory of anyone who died in any conflict or died during military service.
The Sherston service includes Easton Grey and the names of their fallen are read out during the service so everyone from Easton Grey is invited.
A limited number of chairs will be available for those who cannot stand. Those with wheelchairs and mobility scooters should use them.
Church Street will be closed to vehicular traffic from 10.00 am until 12.00pm, diversions will be in place along Sandpits Lane, Green Lane, and Court Street.
