Evocative Words and Music

SoME men never think of it. You did. You’d come along, And say you’d nearly bought me flowers. But something had gone wrong … So begins Wendy cope’s

poem ‘Flowers’. It is just one of several much-loved poems to be read by actress Rohan Mccullough in an evening of ‘Evocative Words and Music’, the music aspect being some delicious pieces played on the clarinet by her brother, Andy Mccullough, accompanied by pianist Andrew leach. To take place in St Mary’s

Parish church, Woodbridge on Friday 15th March at 5pm, the recital will include music by Albinoni, Walton, Kreisler, Verdi, Rachmaninov and others, with poems by Betjeman, Manley Hopkins, Belloc, Kipling and Edward Thomas – and by Wendy cope. Tickets: £10 to include a

glass of fizz, available from Woodbridge Violins or St Mary’s church Shop, Market Hill. Proceeds to the Friends of St Mary’s church Building Repair Fund. Rohan Mccullough began

her acting career in the original cast of Hair, followed by parts in films by David Hare and Derek Jarman has performed with the RSc, at the Edinburgh

Festival and at many West End theatres. She is most noted for her one-woman plays, with which she has toured the world, most recently as clementine churchill in My darling clemmie. She has given poetry and prose recitals with Sir Derek Jacobi, Edward Fox, Robert Powell, John Julius Norwich and Sir John Mortimer. As a narrator, she has performed with leading symphony orchestras in london and the USA. Andy Mccullough, a well-known Woodbridge resident, studied the clarinet in Vienna and at the Royal college of Music. He has played in orchestras of the BBc, the london Symphony, the English National opera and the city of Birmingham Symphony, under conductors including Rattle, Abbado, Previn and Mackerras. He taught at the Royal college of Music and at Eton college, and was an examiner for the Associated Board of the Royal Schools of Music. Since moving to Woodbridge, he has established a series of House concerts. It should be a lovely evening 1 03/01/2019 09:36:59

The I Wanna be Lighter club

THE club made a donation of £250 to The Rose & Sweet William club on June 14th 2018. £250 was also given to The leiston Dementia Project on November 5th 2018. Their


representatives were at the United Reform church Hall in leiston to receive cheques on those dates. on october 11th 2018 it

was the 3rd anniversary of the club and they held a party to celebrate it. A cheque was sent to donate

£250 to The Air Ambulance on that day too. once again the wonderful

club members were able to hand over these gifts from their generosity. They raise the money each

week from their desire to lose a little weight, while enjoying each others company. When they have enough for a presentation, they choose a local charity to support and present them with the money they have saved through their selfless dedication to losing a few pounds. They do not promote strict diets, but rather,

choose whatever works best for themselves. They share each other's tips

and favourite recipes and have a light approach to dieting, whilst still trying to achieve their objective of reducing their weight from the previous week. The club is run by chris Burrows with the help of others. It is a non profit making organisation and the £3 fee each week goes towards the cost of the hall and other expenses. £10 is awarded for the person who has lost the most weight in that week and the next highest weight loser gets a 'free week' the next week. If you cannot make it,

then you do not have to pay anything. We are a happy group

and we meet each Thursday between 4.30pm and 6.30pm at The United Reform church Hall in leiston If anyone is interested, you

are welcome to come along and join us. Gain £'s by losing pounds.
