As you may already be aware from the Village Facebook page, the Wheatsheaf has closed it doors for the foreseeable future. Landlady Amy Harding had hoped to keep the pub going until the current license runs out in August. However, running the business has become increasingly difficult and she simply feels unable to continue.
I am very pleased to report that at 4pm on Saturday, after 14 days and over 1,000 miles in the saddle, Stephen and Peter finally arrived in John O'Groats! This is a truly epic achievement by the two Titchmartians and one which - thanks to Stephen's notes - we've been able to follow all the way.
It's Saturday. It's June. It's time for the Titchmarsh Fête! Under normal circumstance you'd think that would be enough, but now even the stars of the West End are getting in on the act! Michael Grecco - once Bepe in Eastenders - and co-stars from the cast of hit West End production "Exposure" have sent their best wishes. No-lesser stars than David Aubery (The Lion King) and Niamh Perry (The Beautiful Game) are just two of the celebrities queueing up to remind you about this year's very special Titchmarsh Fete!
There was a solid turnout for the organ lecture presented by William McVicker on Saturday night. In recent years St Mary's has become a popular venue for events and last night was no exception. William, who is organ curator at London’s Royal Festival Hall, is a big fan of our organ. He spoke for over an hour in glowing terms about the man who created built it - T.C.Lewis - and why it's so special. Not only is it a rare example of one England's foremost organ builders, despite being built over 150 years ago it also remains largely in its original condition. Other examples of Lewis organs have been restored - not always to good effect.
Whodunnit? Not the butler as the Murder Mystery evening to be held on Saturday 29th October is being held in a comedy club where comedians are vying for the opportunity to perform at the Royal Variety Show. Anne Pettifor and her merry gang will again be performing and one of them will carry out the dastardly deed. Your table's task is to work out whodunnit!
