Last Thursday evening Stonnall Players met in the Village Hall to discuss the possibility of presenting the usual Pantomime in January. As it turned out, there were just not enough people to perform such a big task, as it needed not only actors but also many behind the scenes workers, so for this year it was abandoned, but is to be replaced with a Christmas show in December. Incidentally, this means that the Christmas Pageant will take place on Monday 21st December, so put that date in your diaries.
On Tuesday 14th, the Conservation Society Committee is holding a meeting at Dobbies, commencing at 10.15 am, while in the evening, at 7.15 in Shenstone Village Hall, Shenstone Parish Council will be meeting. This meeting is open to the public.
