Sports club’s panto draws young and old

Kentish Express Ashford & District - - OPINION - by Jenny Round

YOUNG and old came to­gether in Mer­sham vil­lage hall to per­form Cin­derella. About 30 peo­ple took part in the two per­for­mances on Satur­day. Mem­bers of Mer­sham Sports Club put on a pan­tomime ev­ery other year and pre­vi­ous shows have in­cluded The Wizard of Oz and Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs. More than 300 peo­ple came to en­joy the sell-out show. Foot­ball club sec­re­tary and pan­tomime pro­ducer Fred Am­bler said: “Ev­ery­one in­volved put in a great deal of hard work, and the peo­ple were bril­liant. “It’s a great day out. The kids come – and the grand­par­ents.”
