Xmas Pantomime

For many years our club has treated children and their families to a night out at the Pantomime


We are back!  Puss in Boots at the Sarah thorne on Friday 10 December with almost a full house and a great show as ever by all at Sarah Thorne. Our guests were the families from Millmead Children's Centre

The children get free programmes and  raffle tickets and there are ice creams for all.

And we are able to raise funds - much of it through the generosity of local businesses who place adverts in the Xmas programmes - which go to support our club's Cinderella Fund  charitable giving. If we can help it, everyone shall go to the Ball.

It looks as if we have raised some £2,340 from this year's event.

We have had a long association with the Sarah Thorne Theatre in Broadstairs who put on these performances and never disappoint.We value them as an important community asset around whom so many community groups are able to operate. They have had  a hard time, unable to put on the many productions which so many of us enjoy. We thank them for this latest evening of enjoyment, staged against all the difficulties which Covid and its variants present. We wish them well and look forward to a time when they and all of us are up and running free once more.

When Covid is behind us.  Oh Yes It Is! Please God, it nearly is!
