Witnesham has had a wealth of entertainment since the last In Touch magazine. First of all, they had the church fete on June 24th which was well attended and raised more than £2,000 towards church funds. The weather was good and there was a variety of stalls and competitions. A big thank you from the village to everyone who helped, especially Gerry Hindle who managed the event, Terry and Erica for the loan of their land and Anthony for parking access.
The next event to record was the Village Voices and friends presenting an evening of music. There was wonderful variety and talent on display. Notable solo and duet performances by Jane Blondel, Anthony Darell-Brown, Rose Johnson, Mike Trotman, Stephen Woodruffe, Alan and Catherine Forsdike, Mike Sherrod and finally Sue Sturgess and Daffers Rose. Village Voices performed classical songs as well as African and Gospel songs.
Many congratulations to all involved for a brilliant evening and special thanks to Christine and Paul Laughlin for pulling the whole evening together and making it such a success.
The final event to record was the village show. Again there was a good turnout for all the competitions which took place at the Village Hall on July 8th. The event has gradually grown each year since its reintroduction four or five years ago. Let’s hope it continues to grow and gain support. Well done to all those who helped to put it together this year.
