Out of Focus - Masham Players Spring Production 2010











Another brilliant performance by Masham Players www.mashamplayers.co.uk
Under the expert direction of Marjorie Tate, members old and new took the audience by storm.

Out of Focus written by Peter Gordon is a delightful satire of village life. When village groups clash (and don't they just) over the use of the church hall, pandemonium breaks loose. A wonderful mix of characters all with foibles and agenda's of their own!

Due to the severe winter weather when most of the cast members were snowed in and couldn't rehearse for about a month, it's nothing short of a miracle that the play actually happened. Well done!

Masham Players new chairman Ron Smith should be very proud.

The Cast:
Lin Blyth, Luke Charles, Pam Grimsditch, Rob Hall, Kirsty Hallett, Kathryn Holland, Helen Kennedy, Ron Smith, Jonathan Trenholme.

Muncaster Castle and Wast Water in Cumbria, UK

Last week my sister Judith, niece Amy with her dog Molly, and I visited Seascale in Cumbria for a few days.



I thought I would ask the staff if I could present my Thursday evening radio show www.durham-dales-radio.co.uk from The Seller Park Hotel www.penningtonhotels.com Cheeky I know, but they were absolutely delighted, and made us very welcome. I think the staff and residents were more interested in Molly than us because the next day while walking on the beach we met a couple of people over here from America, and they said they remembered Molly from the night before.




In need of some wisdom we visited the World Owl Centre at Muncaster Castle www.muncaster.co.uk We had a walk around the Sino Himalayan Gardens where we saw some fabulous plants, and trees.
If you are planning a visit to Cumbria . . . this is a must!

Wast Water with Great Gable in the distance.



I was so high up the mountain I needed to suck a mint because my ears were popping :-)







They say Muncaster Castle is haunted, maybe I will visit and do my radio show from there, and perhaps interview the ghosts. Did you see the castle on The Lakes series on ITV?










Amy in the stocks. I did go back the next day to release her :-)
