Well done to everyone !
Saturday 24th March 2018: With a fantastic effort from 15 or so members, ex-members and associates we completed our transfer from the Glove Factory in Holt to our new temporary home at a unit in Steeple Ashton. Having filled up two skips worth we transfered the remaining chairs, tables, flats and a piano to our new store. We will look to have a working party at some time in the near future to have a tidy up there as there is still quite a mess to clear in some of the other rooms before we can make the most of the space.
We are required to leave our current scenery store at Holt by the end of March. We are hoping to move our scenery into something like a shipping container which we can keep on the same site, at least temporarily.
We have already been working at sorting out the scenery store, but we need another push at this. So, please come and help at 10am on Saturday 17th March 2018 at the store. We have quite a lot of furniture and props which you may be able to help us dispose of, or keep in a garage, perhaps.
If you are on our mailing list, you will have already seen that we are holding a special meeting of the society to consider what we can do about our scenery store.
We have been given very short notice to quit our current premises in Holt by the end of March 2018. We knew that there was going to be redevelopment of the site in the future, but we had been led to believe that we were safe here for at least the next year (and we have recently paid another six months rent).
If you can come to the meeting, please do. (It’s at Trowbridge Town Hall on Thursday 8th February at 7.30pm.) If you can’t come and have ideas of places or people to contact (or radical ideas about what to do with the scenery!), please get in touch with us to let us know your thinking.
The Trowbridge Players Annual General Meeting is coming up on Monday 4th September at 19:30 at the Tesco Community Space.
This is the annual opportunity for members to steer the society, to decide on things like who runs it and the costs of membership, ticket price policy, etc.
We also award the Eileen Atkinson Rose bowl annually to the person we vote has done the most for the society in the past year. (We like to have nominations for this in advance, so if you are thinking of somebody who needs to be rewarded in this way, please let us know as soon as possible).
This year we thought we’d like to make it a bit more of a social, so we will also be having some pizza (!) and something to drink.
Please do come. You can’t vote if not a member, but you’re welcome to join! The more who come and let us all know what you think, the better able we are to match your expectations and desires.
