Welcome to the May newsletter and I would say that summer is here but unfortunately for the week it appears not. However all is not lost as today I look out of the window and the sun is shining, let’s hope that it is here to stay.


As you may remember I sent a mail in May regarding a potential community cinema at the Community Centre. In addition the Centre has asked for more people to help the association in a range of roles. If anyone is interested in volunteering then please contact Jill Hyde.


In addition the village fete is coming up on the 2nd July and although the Forum will not be attending specifically we have been asked for tombola prizes. If anyone has anything for the tombola then please contact Jill Hyde.




On the 21st May we hosted a quiz supper, which I can confirm was a great success. We sold 51 tickets and everyone had a good time both with the tricky quiz questions and the fabulous supper, both supplied brilliantly by Wendy.


Thanks goes out to everyone who helped with this event and drummed up tables of attendees. But the biggest thanks must go to Wendy for organizing the quiz and the catering.

Autumn Production


On the 9th May we had a read for the autumn production for which Wendy put forward 2 scripts. Unfortunately attendance at the read was very poor and, in spite of some ringing round, there does not appear to be enough interest / availability to put on an autumn show.


Can I please stress the importance of attending script reads, both to support the club and to confirm if you are available or interested in participating in a production. As it is unfair on the person taking the time to source and propose scripts if no-one is interested.




And so onto the next production on the 4th July we are planning to hold our initial read through of any panto’s that have been put forward. If you have a script that you would like to put forward then please contract myself/Leigh.


Otherwise I look forward to seeing all of you on the night. If you cannot come but do want to take part in the panto then please let us know.


Your Chairman

Ros Bartlett

Some Information about Forum Players

We are a friendly club, who celebrated our 40th anniversary in 2008, and we try to put on two plays or revues and a pantomime each year.

We meet most Mondays and Wednesdays at 8.00pm at the Bourne End Community Centre.

We have a good sized stage and have a large scene dock to store flats and props, which allows us to build our own sets.

Anyone is welcome to join our club, you don't have to act as there are plenty of backstage, front of house roles.

Please feel free to pop in and have a chat, or E-Mail me for further information
