re-structuring of the committee, with clear new roles and

rehearsals in full swing for our forthcoming production of Farndale's
Christmas Carol, we were saddened to learn of the death of our good
friend Esther De Vries, who played the part of Mrs Reece in an earlier
play from the Farndale series.
Esther will be remembered by many for
her wonderfully characterful presence on stage, and her warm and

Another successful production comes to a close. A full review of "The Farndale Avenue Housing Estate Townswomen's Guild Dramatic Association's Production of A Christmas Carol" will be available shortly in the Archive section.
