Voting Election

Rachel George has stepped down
Jane Ramsey and Bethan Forster would like to join the committee, everyone was in favour to have 10 committee members unanimous

Panto 2017

– Official thanks to the whole team from Jayne and Simon –  The team pulled together at a really difficult time when their mum passed away

– Jane would like to get online banking for the tickets sales, Karen tried to open a HSBC – Business Account which was very difficult , Jayne suggested a card machine which is around 30-00, Amanda is going to speak to a friend who works at HSBC bank to see how difficult/easy it could be Amanda to update Simon and Karen

– Jane raised the question about children who come to Panto, their age will be asked on the phone and it was agreed Jane will say the show is for 3 years and above and they need a chair rather than sitting on parents lap

– Steve Conlon raised adult choreography the choreographer could not make Sunday rehearsals it was asked whoever the next choreographer is if they could commit to Sunday’s

– Happier it was a shorter Panto/good fun

– Loz raised the issue of having better microphones as the music is loud and we cannot always hear the singing, Loz suggested personal mics but the AGM members were not keen on that idea.  Other suggestions were do we still need an AMP, or voice coaching?

– It was agreed Julie Fletcher would attend another performance next year for the hard of hearing at a cost of £250.00

Panto 2018

Loz and Siobhan to produce – not a long script Little Miss Muffet
Totally new script limited characters sharing roles just looking at the moment as there is more people wanting to take part maybe audition the parts
