The Importance of Being Earnest

Mr Worthing is Jack in the country, but Ernest in town, where he is wooing the delectable Gwendolen. His best friend Algy is a rake and womaniser, who on learning that Jack has an excessively pretty ward called Cecily, sets out on a bunburying adventure to win her hand. Meanwhile, Cecily has already decided that she wants to marry Ernest. None of this will happen if the formidable Lady Bracknell gets her way. Confused? You should be.

The Importance of Being Earnest is a witty comedy of mistaken identity, liberally sprinkled with quips and one liners from Oscar Wilde’s famously acid pen.

Parish Assembly 2006 – but not as you know it…

The 2006 annual parish assembly for all electors is to take place in the Village Hall at 7.30pm on Wednesday 10th May.

In a departure from previous practice, reports are being issued ahead of the event instead of being given verbally at the assembly. The reports are now available on line and there is a link to them on our home page.

This will make space for a guest speaker – this year the managing director of South Staffordshire Water – who is expected to talk about their plans for the future of the reservoir.
