Amateur Dramatics The Epworth Mowbray Players No.10 by Anthony Catherall

Morris Butler one of the original members had moved on to a Headship elsewhere and was missed by

his peers. However the show must go on and the Thriller “Night Must Fall” by Emlyn Williams was chosen for the tenth production. It was first presented at the Duchess Theatre, London, on 31st May, 1935. In the film version of the same name in 1937 it was awarded Best Picture of the Year by the National Board of Review. Robert Montgomery a young actor playing Danny was nominated for Best Actor and Dame May Whitty, also nominated for Best Supporting Actress in the role as Mrs Branson. The plot was, a handsome young man charms his way into the household of a wealthy invalid, but her niece is suspicious of his motives. Later in 1964 the film was remade with the same title, starring Albert Finney, albeit with less success. In the Epworth three act production in March 1958, Jack Johnson had the lead role as Danny, whilst Mary Housham played Mrs Branson. G. Rupert Newborn another newcomer played the Lord Chief Justice, Margaret Archer (Olivia Grayne), Bob Robinson (Hubert Laurie) Ella Dempster (Nurse Libby), Audrey Till (Mrs Terence) Joyce Battye (Dora Parkoe) and Gordon Fletcher, as Inspector Belsize. There were one or two new acknowledgements in the programme (still at 3d). Mrs J. Laird, of Market Place was now selling the Ice Cream and Sweets, whilst grateful thanks was extended to Mrs, W. Harrison, Epworth, for the loan of her wheeled Chair during all rehearsals and the Show. The prompter was Miss Pat Rimington and Marjorie Trimingham took the task of being Property Mistress. Harry T. Shipley took on the new position of Manager (front of Curtain).

TRENTSIDE FEDERATION – St Martin’s and West Butterwick Church of England Primary Schools – School News The Juniors in Class 2 at West Butterwick were buzzing with journalistic talent on Tuesday 12th March following a visit from Sean Ringwood, Scunthorpe Telegraph Journalist. Pupils in Years 3, 4, 5 and 6 were given a really interesting insight in to the life and skills of a journalist by Sean. Sean regaled them with real life journalistic reports gathered over a period of years that featured such eye-catching titles as ‘Pineapple Chunks Saved My Life!’ Sean spoke about his journalistic training and gave a demonstration of ‘short hand’. The Juniors at West Butterwick are now writing their own news stories that will be featured in the Scunthorpe Telegraph in Early April, so please keep an eye out for these! West Butterwick Infants have tied in their fondness for cakes with a worthwhile study of Fair Trade ethics as part of their RE/PSHE studies. The children held a Fair Trade cake sale on Tuesday 19th March. In preparation for this, they took orders from customers across the school community which then led them to ‘doing the maths’ in order to calculate how much Fair Trade ingredients they would need to buy for the delicious cake recipes they had chosen. Cakes have featured strongly in the month of March here at West Butterwick as the School Council held a sale on Thursday 14th March as a final fundraising event for a Playground Markings Project they have been involved in this academic year. The School Council was very appreciative of the large quantity of cake donations and would like to say a big ‘thank you’ to all who supported this event. Cakes aside, there were some important visitors in our school recently – three Parish Councillors (Cllrs Coggon, Lewis and Shadlock) came in to discuss shared local priorities with our School Councillors. Issues such as cars speeding through the village and the ongoing problem with dog fouling emerged as priorities for the school and the Parish Council to work on together. St Martin’s School Council also met recently with a member of the Parish Council for Owston Ferry – Cllr Jan Williams. For the last two academic years, St Martin’s School Council has worked purposefully with the Parish Council on ‘Litter Busting’ and ‘Dog Fouling’. The ongoing problem of dog fouling has led this to be a priority for this year also. Apart from the legal consequences of dog fouling, there are health implications. Symptoms vary but, in severe cases, partial or total loss of sight may occur. Getting dog mess into wounds may also cause infections. Another danger is people being injured by slipping on dog mess. It is a hazard, all in all. We will bring you further news of our campaign and its impact on ‘scooping the poop’ as it progresses! A chance to ‘de-stress’ was provided for the ladies of St Martin’s School Community a few weeks ago when the PTA held a ‘Ladies Night’. There were beauty treatments on offer, refreshments and a variety of stalls. It was very enjoyable and a successful fundraiser for the school. Thanks to all who organised and contributed to the success of the evening. With only a couple of weeks to go until the end of this rather short Spring Term, we are learning at a fast pace and enjoying some awe-inspiring projects such as ‘Adopt a Dolphin’ and writing to Green Peace (and receiving a reply!) in the Foundation Stage, creating a Rainforest Tree in the classroom (Key Stage 1) and visiting The Deep in Hull (all of Key Stage 2 Juniors) to learn about habitats and how a number of these are endangered requiring natural conservation to be a priority. On a less serious note, I am sure that most schools participated in the ‘wear something funny for money’ linked to Comic Relief on Friday 15th March. St Martin’s staff and pupils were indeed a sight to behold! This term will end with our traditional Easter Services in the final week. We hope that everyone has an enjoyable Easter!

RED NOSES IN WROOT Comic Relief weekend in Wroot got off to a good start on Friday night with fun and games in the village hall. Members of Wroot Amateur Players provided entertainment performing several sketches; there were organised games, a red nose quiz and the disco man! The bar and kitchen were manned by willing volunteers and a good night was had by all concerned. With a few sore heads, Saturday dawned all too early for some, and with the mornings activities imminent it was disappointing to see the rain. Six children had organised a car wash at the Village Hall and inside there was a cake competition taking place. The weather however did not detract from the task in hand, and in 2 hours in the cold and unforgiving weather, Alicia and Sam Jones, Hannah and Max Powell, Libby and Tom Goodwin between them cleaned 24 cars and raised ÂŁ135.00 for comic relief, and eventually the sun did peep out momentarily but not before the children had obtained genuine red noses! Inside the Cakes were entered into three classes and Beryl Tonkinson from the Cross Keys Pub was asked to judge. Ellie Oates won the adult "Best Tasting Cake" category. Libby Goodwin took first prize in the "Best Decorated Bun" class for children and Julie Noble won the adult "Best Decorated Cake" class. The cakes were then donated for sale and raised ÂŁ58.00 The ladies in the kitchen spent the morning cooking and selling bacon and sausage sandwiches, cups of tea and coffee plus a variety of home baked confectionary and the village hall was buzzing with enthusiasm. In total for the Saturday event ÂŁ270.25 was raised for comic relief, the final figure for the Friday event has still to be worked out. A big thank you to those who worked so hard putting the events on and to those who attended and contributed, well done!
