Much of the following material was scanned from the Society's scrap book which has been kept by Linda Bennett and further scripts
and programmes were loaned to Peter Willis
by Margaret Dean (nee Hughes) who appeared in many productions during the 1950s.
The original material dated back to 23rd February 1949 when "Yes And No" was produced by Stanley Wilson in the old Victory Hall,
but more recently, a programme (cost 2D) and press photo for "The Rotters" has been provided by Shiela Hatherley from Australia.
"The Rotters" was staged at Tarporley Town Hall and from the dates of the performances (Wednesday and Thursday, Nov 23 and 24)
the year was probably 1938.
The Town Hall was located near the bottom of Forest Road on the southern side.
