Hello everyone. I am Mercedes and I have been a member of the Farndale Townswomen’s Guild for a good few years now. I won’t tell you exactly how long – as you might be able to guess my age! I love being involved in the dramatic society. Sadly, I haven’t won any acting awards yet, but I think it’s the hard work and enthusiastic team work that counts.
I must admit that Mrs. Reece has always been an absolute star organising everyone. She is like a kindly mother hen- although I hope she’s not becoming bored listening to all my aches and pains.
Unfortunately, I had a bit of an accident a couple of months ago. I was quite badly injured in a supermarket trolley stampede when a new batch of TOILET ROLLS arrived!!! Anyway, I am determined not to let the other ladies down – and Gordon, of course – and I will still manage to play Bob Cratchit, and various other parts, in our wonderful production of “A Xmas Carol” at the Millgate.
Come down and have some fun with us from November 20th. I’m certain that you will go home with a big smile on your face!
