The Invisible Woman: 22nd October

A play by Ailsa Jenkins, starring Nicola Reynolds

Coming to the Village Hall, Tuesday 22nd October

Invisible Woman posterA few years ago, Mari realised she had disappeared. Shocked but undaunted, she’s decided to use this misfortune to her advantage. Get ready for red lipstick, rubber bands and retribution as Mari attempts to right the wrongs of her community.

But there’s something else behind her crusade. Can she make peace with the past to fix her present? Can she make herself visible to those who matter most to her?

The Invisible Woman is a one-woman dark comedy about ageing ungracefully and searching for significance, written by Ailsa Jenkins and inspired by her own disappearance.  It is performed by Welsh actress Nicola Reynolds.

Doors and bar open 7.30pm for an 8pm start.

Beetle Drive & Big Breakfast

beetledrive.jpg

Family Beetle Drive, June 2018

The Village Hall committee, all volunteers ourselves, rely on support from the rest of the village and appreciate all the help we get to keep things going at the hall.  From the Glade Tavern volunteers to all the people hiring the hall for village groups, everyone contributes to maintaining our building and facilities, which in return provides everyone with a place for the social activities that are so important to our community.

I wanted to highlight two recent examples of events organised by people not on the committee which have benefitted the hall financially, while providing great, fun social occasions for people of all ages.

Alison and Mark Arnell and their team of young helpers raised £310 from the Big Breakfast, which was divided between hall funds and Home-Start Monmouthshire.  (We have received a letter of thanks from Home-Start which stresses how valuable donations are to enable them to continue to support vulnerable families in the county.)

On 29th June, Rachel Widdicks and Mary Pardington organised the Family Beetle Drive, with food provided by Brendan Pardington.  This raised £155 for hall funds, another valuable contribution.

But mostly, a full room with every generation joining in the fun – that’s what the Village Hall is all about.
