Our Dash­ing Doc­tor by Alma Woods was read by Noreen Har­ris and Pat Scaife.The sec­ond com­edy, Jumble, was set in the Vil­lage Hall and the cast was Mrs Beal (Fay Tay­lor) Mrs Hitch­cock (Judy Green­wood) and Mrs Gam­ble (Effie Gal­lie)

Fiona Collins then read a short ac­count of how an English meal called Red Flan­nel Hash was in­vented. Ev­i­dently a fu­ri­ous wife minced up her hus­band’s red flan­nels and added them to the hash when she sus­pected him of in­fi­delity. Chopped beet­root is now used in­stead and added to a hash of eggs, pota­toes and onions, and baked.

The third play, a good drama, called Some­thing of a Stir by Joseph Jonas was set in Dora’s kitchen (Ch­eryl Wood­mass). Paula (Lo­raine Wilkie) and Maisie (Jane Lawrence) are read­ing for­tunes and fu­tures from tea leaves and cards.
