Parkham Parish Council
Parkham did have a very strong tradition of producing a spectacular “Village
Pantomime” every year. This was due to the experience and enthusiasm of Tim
(boo, hiss) and Marion (hurrah) Attewell and their merry band of helpers (hip, hip
etc) for nearly 40 years. The group covered every aspect of the production from
make-up and scenery to scripts and costumes.
Recently, a Parishioner has asked the question “Why not do it again?” (Oh yes, he
did). Is it possible that the best years of the pantomime are not behind you but still
with us? Marion has offered her experience and encouragement to a new
generation of pantomimers. In the hope that sufficient people come together to
form a company of all ages in a new production.
If you could contribute something to a new production team, please let Parkham Pie
know of your interest (by email or phone) so that we can arrange a meeting when
Covid restrictions allow (Boo Boo) and who knows, once again, “we shall all go to
the Ball”? Marion (451 812) can give you more information about the past

Unfortunately this does mean we will miss our Easter Bingo.
When it is considered safe we will resume later this year. Date to be advised by posters, local paper listings, Parkham Pie and the parish website www.parkhamparish.org.uk
Our Best wishes go to all our loyal supporters and helpers at this difficult time.

How the fraud works: The potential victim gets a phone call.
