Committee 2009



Murder-Mystery Evening

Forty-one members of the Society, in 1920’s costume, were invited to the country estate of Sir Clive and Lady Worthington-Jones, eccentric English aristocrats. Dora, their moral crusader daughter, had become engaged to an ambitious MP.

Guests were welcomed  to their country seat (MSA Village Hall) with glass of fashionable pink Cava and met the family and their aristocratic friends.

During supper, it became clear that that we were in for a bumpy weekend. Sir Clive (Brian Parkinson) somewhat blind the oleaginous faults of his secretary (Steve Lord), detested the ambitious MP (played by Jon Riddle) and was, not going to let his willful daughter (Maureen Lock) marry such a cad. Richard Lock made an imperturbable butler (quite “to the manor borne”)

Sally Dyer very ably assisted by Helen Lord and Alison Riddle, organised a spread of cold and hot Tapas sourced from “Tapas in a Box”. They were so busy in the kitchen that they missed the MURDER of Sir Clive’s daughter during the main course! It turned out that the dirty deed had been done by a demure lady guest (Sue Potts). I never found out why she did it!!

The cast was completed by Jane Cooke and Marion Regan who had clearly studied the period being most convincing flappers!!
