Christmas at the Pop In Place…

The Staff Party We   have   just   had   our   staff   Christmas   Party   with   all   the   usual   immature   games   that   we   all   like   at   this   time   of year. Thanks to Joanna for the chocolate game think that was a big hit this year. Thanks   to   Gaye   for   the   pass   the   parcel   story   game   and   to   Ruth   for   the   musical   Quiz   won   by   Julie   and   I,   nice   to know your new directors are so knowledgeable in their field. Thanks   to   Liz   Farley   for   the   who’s   who,   that   was   an   excellent   Ice   breaker   at   the   beginning,   and   well   done   to   all who did a party piece (Someone please get Peter a joke book for Christmas!) But   in   all   seriousness   the   Pop   In   Place   would   not   be   able   to   operate   without   everyone’s   efforts   and   people playing their own individual parts in making it the most wonderful vibrant village organisation. So I thank you all and wish you a very Happy Christmas.

Monday Party 17th December 2012…

We   had   a   lovely   time   at   the   Monday   Christmas   Party,   thanks   to   everyone   who   came   along   and   to   all   who helped   with   the   games   and   Quiz,   thanks   to   Gwen   for   the   pass   the   parcels   and   to   Julie   Osmond   for   the   lovely home-made Mince pies. Well   done   to   everyone   who   won   the   free   raffle   prizes,   and   Cis   you   wont   be   able   to   be   late   now   that   you   have that   lovely   clock,   well   done   to   Jean   for   winning   the   cake   and   to   Rita   who   won   the   beautiful   hand   made Christmas mats made by Stella.

Festive Morning Friday 21st 10am until 12 noon…

The   Pop   In   Place   is   holding   a   festive   Morning   next   Friday   21st   December   at   the   upper   Village   Hall   from   10am until   12   noon,   there   will   coffee/tea   and   warm   mince   pies,   traditional   carol   singing   with   Kath   Jeeves   at   the piano, and a visit from the children from Bere Regis school who are going to sing for us. All welcome to come along and join in the fun. It is also hoped that Rod will be there doing some filming for the Bere Regis DVD.

Festive Morning Friday 21st 10am until 12 noon…

The   Festive   Morning   wasn’t   looking   too   festive   on   Thursday   as   poor   Kath   was   ill   and   unable   to   play   the   piano, then Bere Regis school sadly had to pull out due to illness. However   in   true   community   spirit   Jim   was   able   to   source   David   Leigh,   who   is   the   most   talented   pianist,   and   he played   for   the   whole   morning   with   the   carols   and   for   people   to   sing   Jim   and   Jan   did   a   lovely   version   of   a “Winters Tale” and Julie and I sang “In the Bleak Winter” and David played beautifully. Tony   Shave   was   well   enough   to   attend   after   his   recent   accident   and   was   voted   the   best   Bing   sound   alike   in   the Bing   Factor   this   was   a   close   run   thing   with   lovely   singing   from   Max,   Colin,   Ruths   Dad,   Graham,   and   of   course Jon. Thanks   to   Gaye   and   Liz   Farley   and   Rose   who   did   the   teas,   it   turned   into   a   lovely   morning   against   all   odds   so thank you to everyone especially Pastor Jim who came to the rescue. Also   thanks   to   CARS   for   the   lovely   display   left   on   the   stage   from   their   recent   Father   Christmas   event,   that really helped to create the Christmas spirit. It was also lovely to see Rod doing some more filming for the Bere Regis DVD project. We   start   back   on   Monday   7th   January   we   wish   all   our   supporters   and   volunteers   a   Happy   Christmas   and   we look forward to the New Year when we have many new and exciting challenges ahead of us.

Pop In Performers Panto Peter Pan…

We   have   just   staged   three   shows   of   Peter   Pan   to   sell   out   audiences,   the   cast   and   crew   have   done   a   fantastic job and the community have very much enjoyed the delights that we have bestowed on them. Many   of   the   younger   members   of   the   group   were   taking   part   for   the   very   first   time,   we   also   had   some   adults taking on roles who have never acted before and they have all done a marvellous job. This   production   has   greatly   benefited   from   the   new   lighting   system   and   that   has   added   another   dimension and been instrumental in the professional feel of the show. The    costumes    and    the    set    were    excellent    and    the    wealth    of    talent    that    exists    within    the    cast    is    just outstanding. Thanks   to   Janet   and   Pastor   Jim   for   their   tireless   work   with   this   production,   they   have   worked   so   hard   to   pull off the most ambitious pantomime the group has undertaken. Well   done   to   all   involved   and   I   am   very   pleased   to   announce   that   we   have   raised   a   phenomenal   £1,200   for   the Alzheimer’s   Society   who   will   use   that   to   help   in   very   real   and   positive   ways   to   improve   the   lives   of   those   living with dementia.
