We persuaded  Paul Brewer to give up his sea-faring ambitions and become our Community Centre Manager. But it could have gone either way. See his story here.





And John Oakley gave up a promising career as a rock ‘n roll star to settle down ( more or less ) in Wing as the husband of Judith Oakley, sister of the much-loved Sheila Casey and become Editor of the website.

Joanne always did the concert and pantomime make up. This year, Jan, Janet, Brenda, Shiela, volunteered to help. I think it was for Puss in Bootly, mid 80s I guess.
