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   everyones   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.

The Festive Morning

The photos below will not enlarge 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 p    l    a    y    e    d      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.

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.

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 Alzheimers Society who will use that to help in very real  and positive ways to improve the lives of those living with dementia.
