Boxted Amateur Players

The Players are looking for additional recruits to participate in a weekly workshop with a view to joining the cast for future productions. Starting this Saturday (4th) at 2pm there is the opportunity to try out some acting skills in a friendly environment with Boxted Amateur Players at the Village Hall. Its free and open to all (under 14s with a parent/adult only please). We will have a go at improvisation, a bit of mime and think about plans for a new production later in the year for those interested.
There is no obligation so please feel free to come along as a taster session.

Would you like to have a Men’s Shed in your area?

Sheds are community spaces where men can socialise, work on practical projects and learn new skills together.  Whether making toys for craft fairs, planters for civic buildings or even restoring village signs you can be sure it’s not all about the wood or metal working- it’s just as much about the company; the morning ritual of tea and biscuits and banter, the sharing of stories as well as skills.

The first Men’s Shed opened in Maldon in 2014, since then the Essex Shed Network has provided support and advice to many other Sheds which have successfully opened across the county. And now we have found a site for a potential Shed between Langham and Boxted, but we need your help to get it off the ground and make it a success.

So, if you would like to have a Men’s Shed in your community, then please come along to an informal meeting that we are holding at Boxted Parish Council to express your interest and find out more – Tuesday 22 May 7pm.

We look forward to meeting you there!
