Hodnet British Legion Children's PartyParty Time at Hodnet (Newspaper Cutting)

Members of the Hodnet Brit­ish Legion, Women’s, Section entertained about 60 children from the village to a party at the Lyon Hall. After an excellent tea provided by the lady mem­bers and crackers supplied by Mr. Dare Powell (president of the men’s section) the children played games. Each child received a gift from the Christ­mas tree donated by the men’s section and these were presented by Mrs. D. Stanier, president of the ladies section.


Shaw play at Hodnet (Newspaper Cutting)

Hodnet Drama Group Presented Bernard Shaw’s comedy “Arms and the Man” on Saturday and Monday in the Lyon Hall, with the following cast: Raina, Janet Griffiths: Cather­ine, Stella Bowen; Louka, Jill Major; Bluntschli, Pat O’Dwyer; Russian officer, A1wyn Griffiths; Nicola, Clive Daly; Petkoff, James Hugill; Sergius, Alwyn Griffiths. The play was produced by WiIf Major and James Hugill; the stage manager was Donald Packman; dressing of the parts by lrene Hugill; stage furniture was lent by Monty France, of Hodnet.

The Hodnet Drama, Group are to be congratulated on their choice of play, on the skilful production, and on the casting of the players, all of whom, on their showing, must either, have had considerable experience or intensive rehearsal. The play went from curtain up to curtain down with verve and pace which was a delight to watch. The persistence of Shaw’s popularity with amateur players is certainly understandable.

The staging of the play was simple, but with the help of rather ingenious additions to space, lighting and proscenium decorations, effective. Hodnet are fortunate in having such a fine village hall and such a live drama group.
