KNEBWORTH NEWS - May 2011

From Jo Simson - 12th May

KATS Present a One Act Festival - it's a piece of cake: come along for a free piece of home-made cake and a natter during the intervals when Knebworth Amateur Theatrical Society present a One Act Festival - three plays for the price of one each night - at 8pm in the Village Hall tonight, tomorrow and Saturday 14 May. Tickets £6.50 (concessions £5.50) from Frances Farrugia 01438 820136, or Village News, Station Road.

Knebworth Youth Choir is not as young as it looks: Apologies. In my excitement about the Knebworth Youth Choir last week - or was it my habit of skim-reading? - I invited 3-8 year olds to join the Knebworth Youth Choir. The Choir is in fact for children in School Year 3-8. It will be taking part in the Knebworth Talent Showcase at the Festival on 18 June. First rehearsal is tomorrow, Friday 13 May from 5.15-6.15pm in Trinity Church. Contact Sam Jellett on 01438 235185 for full details.

Congratulations to Hannah: Hannah Brookes really is aged 9 and she is a fine, lively artist. That's the verdict of judge Caroline McCaffrey from Hertfordshire Community Foundation, sponsors of the CPRE Hertfordshire Village of the Year Children's Poster Competition. Hannah, of Knebworth School, beat off competition from over 800 entries from 19 schools with her winning poster design on the theme 'A Village Wedding'. Hannah's poster will be sent to all villages entering the Village of the Year competition and all nine winning posters will be on display at the Village of the Year Awards Evening on 30 June in County Hall. Knebworth School receives £100 to spend on art supplies.

Stalls on the Green pray for fine weather to continue: Home-made cakes, and other produce will be on offer on Saturday 14 May from 9.30-11.30am on St. Martin's Green in aid of St. Mary's and St. Martin's Church funds.

Are you in favour of a secondary school being built within one and half miles of the centre of Knebworth?: That's the question Knebworth parish Council is asking us. The We Need a School group has obtained permission to make a business case to build a Free (out of the State system) School somewhere within that radius, or possibly a little further away. The Parish Council wants to know what we think. Survey slips are available from the Library, village news, Station Road or the Corner Store, Stockens Green until 21 May. You can post completed slips in the Village Hall letterbox.

Fine day for a walk: The next Rambling Group outing is a 5½ circular route from the Plume of Feathers in Tewin, finishing with a pub lunch. Meet on Tuesday 17 May at 10am in the Village Hall Car Park. All welcome including well-behaved dogs on leads.

Take a lie down and save a life: Tuesday 17 May is also the day of the National Blood and Transplant Service visit to the Village Hall. Blood donors can do it from12.45-3.30pm and 5-7.45pm.


From Jo Simson - 5th May

Next Knebworth WI meeting: The WI sound to be in somewhat sombre mood. Their next meeting on Weds 11 May at 7.45pm in Trinity Church Hall will include a talk on 'the Origins and History of the Funeral Profession' by Justin Burgess. Visitors and guests are very welcome to the meeting, which includes a discussion and vote on the resolutions to be debated at the National AGM in Liverpool in June. You also get the chance to join in the competition by bringing along something on the theme 'All things Bright and Beautiful' and a contribution for the 'Anything Goes' stall.

One Act Festival time: As Knebworth gears up for its Festival in June, KATS (Knebworth Amateur Theatrical Society) offer you to chance of a taster in the form of a One Act Festival. It's a piece of cake for KATS - literally. The ticket price of £6.50 (concessions £5.50) includes a piece of home-made cake. Three very different plays - 'A Kind of Vesuvius' by Gillian Plowman, 'Tell me Another Story, Sing me a Song', by Jean Lenox Toddie and 'Outdoor Pleasures' by Jean McConnell - will be performed 12-14 May in the Village Hall at 8pm each night for your delectation. They feature an all male, all female and mixed cast respectively. You can decide for yourselves which one you would choose to win a Festival, but for KATS it's a celebration of what they love - drama. Box Office Frances Farrugia 01438 820136, or Village News, Station Road. Meantime, you can find full details of the Knebworth Festival and a ticket order form in the pull-out supplement in this month's Parish News, also on sale in the very excellent Village News, Station Road.

Knebworth Youth Choir: Any 3-8 year old wishing to make a joyful noise is invited to join the Knebworth Youth Choir which will be taking part in the Knebworth Talent Showcase at the Festival on 18 June. No experience necessary, and no auditions, but a one-off fee of £5 will be charged to cover costs. First rehearsal is Friday 13 May from 5.15-6.15pm in Trinity Church. Contact Sam Jellett on 01438 235185 for full details.

Stalls on the Green: Home-made cakes, and other produce will be on offer on Saturday 14 May from 9.30-11.30am on St. Martin's Green. Included in the stalls will be beautiful Cambodian crafts, sold by Knebworth School teacher Nicola Knight in aid of the Care for Cambodia orphanage in Phnom Penh where she does voluntary work.
