Belated Happy New Year to you!

Play Reading Matinee Luncheon
It started so well, with 25 of us enjoying two short plays and a lovely three-course meal at the Diana Carvery on Saturday 16th January. Martin Curd directed Pat Kelly and Ruth Baldwin; followed by Peter Brooks directing Beverley Stonehewer and Eileen Audas in two funny plays both with a twist. Then sadly, due to the new Covid-19 restrictions, we have had to cancel the same event on the 30th January. We will try and repeat this at a later date. We will make refunds to those who booked in advance or you may reserve the booking for another event. It is your choice.

The Annual General Meeting (AGM)
We have decided to postpone our AGM, even though we had planned to do it online. There are no major decisions to take and all our Board members are willing to stand again with the exception of Carol Woolnoth who said she was standing down last year to concentrate on her work with Age Concern. Whilst our statutes require an annual meeting before the end of March each year, in the current climate the rules are suspended. It is our intention to hold the meeting as soon as we can, probably in the early summer. Fingers crossed.

Towards Zero by Agatha Christie
Peter Brooks and his wonderful cast are still planning to perform this brilliant drama for you as soon as possible. We will let you know when and where.

Sad news
We have been informed that a longstanding member, Peter Rogers, has lost his long battle with cancer. He and his wife Gina, returned to the UK a few years ago but he will be remembered for his excellent work on all the marketing he did for ITS. He produced all our posters, fliers and programmes. He was also one of our talented actors. Everyone who knew him says what a lovely man he was, a real gentleman. He will be much missed. Rest in Peace Peter.
