Firstly I must declare my vested interest in Kings Theatre Portsmouth, being a volunteer tour guide and backstage crew, but we as a family, saw this years Panto twice from front of house and had a really great time. I know it’s a long way off, but you may possibly like to share the fun in 2022 with the production of Cinderella. Tickets will be on sale soon. I know, a blatant plug! Oh no its not! Oh yes it is!

Don’t forget this is your newsletter and any contributions will be gratefully received. Perhaps your unexpected Christmas stories?

And finally, I’ll leave you with this, BUT I hope I wont see any Shed member trying this outside the Spotted Cow Cowplain!

As he heads into the pub a middle-aged man spots a bewildered old soul appearing to fish in a puddle outside. Taking pity, he offers to buy him a drink. As they sip their whiskeys, the younger man decides to lighten the mood and asks, ‘So how many have you caught today?’
The old man replies, ‘Oh, you’re the ninth.’

That’s all for now. Keep an eye on your inbox for any COVID updates. In the meantime, take care all and stay safe.

Regards Dave (WMS Secretary)
