Larry

Larry by Mark Burgess starring Keith Drinkel

At Fulking Village Hall on Saturday 15th July at 7:00pm, duration about 65 minutes, tickets are £8 (£5 concessions) and available on the door only.

Larry is a play by Mark Burgess, directed by Daniel Finlay and starring Keith Drinkel as Sir Laurence Olivier. It tells the story of Olivier in his declining years making a new career for himself in film and television. He remembers his career running the National Theatre and his five years of stage fright. It tells of his determination to keep on working and his final performance of King Lear for television.

Larry has been previously performed in London and at Brighton Festival. Keith Drinkel’s own career spans fifty years on stage.

[N.B. the date for this event that appeared in the paper version of the July Pigeon Post was incorrect.]

CAKES!, CAKES!, CAKES!
Due to the success of ‘Teas’ in the village hall & garden last year The Teas Team have agreed to repeat the exercise! So, once again they are desperate for cakes. It is important to let Pam (271) or Tricia (255) know if you are able to donate a cake (last year you were all amazing!) so that they have some idea of how many they will receive. All cakes can be dropped off (not literally!) in the hall after 10.30 on the day or given to Pam or Tricia by prior arrangement.

CALL MY BLUFF
Not many tables unreserved for Friday 28 July at 7pm in the North Town Field. Places are £15 or £100 for a table of 8. Pay on the night but book through Bob (271) or Emily at the Shepherd & Dog.

Parking in Clappers Lane

Garages in Clappers Lane

Residents of Clappers Lane will hold a meeting in the Village Hall on Friday 7th July at 7.30pm to discuss parking at the southern end of Clappers Lane. All villagers are welcome to attend and contribute to the discussion. The aim of the meeting is to look for solutions to ease parking for those without off-road parking — specifically residents between 5 and 27 Clappers Lane.

Most of us are aware of a number of recent incidents because of too many cars parked along a very narrow stretch of Clappers Lane and very large vehicles travelling regularly along the lane causing obstructions and accidents. It has also had a knock-on effect for parking in The Street.

Do come along with comments and suggestions. If you can’t attend and want to contribute your ideas, please email Linda Dyos at linda.dyos@fulking.plus.com or pop a note through her letterbox at number 11 in advance of the meeting.

Miles Firth and Linda Dyos
