In loving memory of Mr (Trev) Ricketts d.3rd February 2024112 viewsRicky Ricketts writes : "I can’t believe I am actually writing this ….. but wanted to let you all know that my amazing dad and role model Trevor Ricketts sadly passed away suddenly at 2:20 am Saturday morning. To say I feel heartbroken is an understatement.
I think the thing I am struggling with most is the suddenness of it all. Last weekend we had a lovely family walk around Port Solent to the pub where of course he beat me in his first ever game of “Guinness line” drinking !!
I know many of you will be wondering “how on earth?” as he was super fit and still walking many miles every day. Without any warning signs he had a massive stroke on Thursday morning and later that day he underwent surgery to remove two large clots from his brain, which appeared to go well. I even got to speak to him for a couple of minutes in recovery and whilst not himself he was looking forward to the test match on Friday !
Unfortunately, in the early hours of Friday, he suffered a catastrophic bleed to the brain and the consultant told us that he wouldn’t recover. We were able to sit with him all day on Friday, and the early hours of Saturday morning, to share our memories, listen to jazz, say good bye and most importantly promise him that we will take care of my incredible mum Gillian Ricketts … something I know I wont be doing alone as they are so loved by many.
Dad, I will miss you more than you will ever know and promise to shout louder at Swindon, clap louder at Lords and make you proud xx "

blithe_spirit_Easter_55.jpg
Blithe Spirit Easter 19666 viewsThis year's Easter production was "Blithe Spirit", an improbable farce I by Noel Coward. There were two performances on Monday the 4th and Tuesday the 5th of April.
The cast was as follows:
Edith (the maid) - Gillian Coe Ruth Condomine - Liz Jameson Charles Condomine - Bob Gale
Dr. Bradman - David Radford Mrs. Bradman - Gloria Evans Madame Arcarti - Lois Reed Elvira - Felicity Burge

Madame Arcarti acted with the greatest of ease and self confidence. She deserved the frequent applause.
