The Monday Players present .... See how they run

published on 5th Apr 2017


by Philip King

So swift is the action, so involved the situations, so rib tickling the plot in this London hit that at its finish audiences are left as exhausted from laughter as though they had run a foot race.

See How They Run is set in the idyllic village of Merton-cum-Middlewick, England during the 1940s. It's World War II, and the village inhabitants are preparing themselves for the imminent threat of Nazi invasion. Meanwhile, resident spinster, Miss Skillon, becomes convinced that her beloved vicar's actress wife is having an affair and attempts to expose her.

Add an escaped German prisoner of war, a handsome actor, the visiting Bishop of Lax, a rotund locum priest and some meddling neighbours and hilarious confusion and mayhem result.

Galloping in and out of the four doors of an English vicarage are an American actor and actress (he is now stationed in England), a cockney maid who has seen too many American movies, an old maid who "touches alcohol for the first time in her life," four men in clergyman suits presenting the problem of which is which, for disguised as one is an escaped prisoner, and a sedate Bishop aghast at all these goings on and the trumped up stories

Beck potential pollution reported

published on 9th Feb 2017

The Parish Council has received a complaint about potential pollution in the beck - however by the time the Parish Council was able to attend the reported pollution had gone.

Pollution concerns should be reported to the Environment Agency on their 24 hour helpline - 0800 80 70 60.

They can make a more timely response, and are responsible for any subsequent investigation.

If you are able to take photographs of the pollution and note where it appears to originate from, this may help subsequent investigations.
