Annual Golf Day 

Our annual golf competition, which took place  on Friday 20th July at  ''Dewlands Golf Club'' in Rotherfield was won for the first time by a lady member of the Village Players. Trish Gray outplayed a strong field to claim the Village Players Golf Cup. Despite the rather dissapointing weather all 16 players had a very enjoyable day of golf.

Our production of  ''Calamity Jane'' was a great success with sell out audiences enjoying this very lively musical, which was set in the the wild west. We are very grateful to Lizzie Hutcheson who directed the production and to all of the cast and crew who helped make the performance such an enjoyable production.
